  • You have a family member who may need to consider driver retirement

Our professional staff can:

Our Medical Center Driver Rehabilitation Program has both the expertise and equipment to assist drivers with a wide range of physical disabilities. Evaluations are completed by an occupational therapist who is also a Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist. Upon receipt of a doctor's order and medical history, the evaluation is scheduled at the client and family's convenience. It includes both clinical and behind-the-wheel portions.

The evaluation takes places at Genesis Medical Center, West Central Park in Davenport.
