Information on driving after brain injury and service providers, navigating ICBC’s system.
The cognitive, emotional and physical changes associated with brain injury can affect a person’s driving ability. Problems with attention, concentration, judgment, problem solving, decision-making and speed of information processing can all lead to unsafe driving practices.
Noise and sights may cause distraction, irritation and/or agitation. Physical changes may affect the ability to control a vehicle, and reflexes and reaction times may be slower. Poor visual/auditory and perceptual skills also have an effect on a person’s ability to drive safely. When these problems occur, a comprehensive driving evaluation by a driver rehabilitation specialist can assist with determination of safe driving potential.
BC Driver Rehab Programs are best for clients who have a goal and potential to resume driving. The goal of Driver Rehab is to assist clients to resume driving, offering assessments, lessons, compensatory strategies and vehicle modification (if needed) to enable participation in Driving as an Activity of Daily Living. (FIT Consultants)
***Drive Able Programs are best for clients who have dementia, progressive cognitive conditions with memory impairments (not clients with TBI or visual and /or physical impairments). (FIT Consultants)
