JR Rehab Services Inc. now offers Comprehensive Driver Evaluations

JR Rehab Services Inc. has opened a dedicated clinic in Langley to perform Comprehensive Driver Evaluations.

A Comprehensive Driver Evaluation is an off and on-road assessment of an individual’s ability to safely perform the required components of driving, including physical, cognitive, perceptual and behavioral aspects.

This evaluation is necessary when experienced drivers are questioned about their ability to safely perform this complex task following a diagnosis of physical, neurological or psychosocial significance.

They will be performed by Maureen Woodward, JR Rehab Services Inc. Occupational Therapist with a Graduate Certificate in Driving Rehabilitation, in partnership with RoadSafetyBC and Certified Driving Instructors.

A Comprehensive Driver Evaluation can also benefit novice drivers by determining their ability to learn driving skills and providing recommendations for driver training programs.
