Driver Rehabilitation

Coastal Occupational Therapy’s DriveAbility program is designed to help individuals with physical, cognitive, or visual impairments regain their skills and confidence behind the wheel. Our Driving Rehab Specialist (DRS) plays a vital role in this program by conducting a thorough evaluation of your driving ability, recommending adaptive equipment, providing training and rehabilitation services, and working with you and your family to develop a plan for safe and independent driving.

Our goal is to help you regain your independence and improve your quality of life. With the support and guidance of our DRS, you can get back on the road and operate a vehicle safely and confidently.
