On-Road Driving Practice and Assessment

The program has a state-of-the-art DriveSafety simulator system that can be used for behind-the-wheel evaluation and training. The simulator is also equipped with adaptive equipment for training. The simulator gives your teen a safe, secure environment to practice skills before he drives on the road with the driver rehabilitation specialist.

The behind-the-wheel assessment is performed in a specialized vehicle equipped with a training brake and adaptive equipment for most disabilities. Depending on your child’s needs, the driver rehab specialist may recommend additional training with or without adaptive equipment.
