Thank you for assisting your relative or friend with understanding and carrying out the Driving Assessment process. It is a lot of information to comprehend and remember, and this can just increase anxiety for people who are already fearful about losing their licence.
Remember that driving is a privilege and retirement from driving is something we all must face.
1. Ensure the client has a valid driver’s licence to proceed.
2. Have the referral faxed directly from the General Practitioner or referring specialist to Coastal Rehab on fax (07) 5478 1511.
3. Someone from Coastal Rehab will phone the client and send information about the process.
The fee is payable on the day of assessment if paying by cash or cheque. If paying by internet banking, payment is required 3 days prior to the assessment.
Please note, once an assessment is booked in with Coastal Rehab, there may be a fee to reschedule or cancel your appointment.
4. Please accompany your relative to the assessment.
Anxiety will negatively affect driving performance. Please encourage the person to relax prior to the assessment.
Make sure that the person being assessed is well rested and has eaten prior to the assessment.
