Driving does not just require a single cognitive ability like attention and memory used in isolation. Instead, driving is a fairly complex task requiring information to be processed from what we hear, see and feel kinesthetically while also calling on our cognitive abilities to simultaneously analyze, reason and predict future traffic events. Medications, as well as many medical conditions such as memory loss, Stroke, Heart Disease, and Diabetes can impact your driving skills. Medication or medical conditions can cause even the best drivers to become unsafe.
Driving Fitness Evaluations is proud to be providing the most comprehensive driving evaluation program around to objectively determine if your driving skills have indeed changed.
