Emma King is a Licensed Occupational Therapy Driving Assessor with NSW Roads & Maritime Service (RMS). We can support you to have an assessment completed if you have been referred by your doctor, or the RMS. We can assist you with a general assessment and can also complete an assessment for disability modifications such as hand controls, steering aids, left foot accelerator, additional mirrors, and vehicle transfer aids.
An OT Driving Assessment involves an "off-road" assessment regarding driving history, and skills needed for driving, including vision, physical range of movement, coordination, reaction time and cognitive functioning. An "on-road" assessment of driving ability is then conducted in a Driving Instructor's vehicle with dual braking.
We work with several Driving Instructors on the Mid North Coast of NSW, including Specialist Driving Instructor Julie Crocker of Drivewise Training School (www.drivewisetrainingschool.com.au) who has a modified vehicle, fitted with modified controls including:
