Why do we need Adaptive Driving Solutions?

Driving is one of the key things most of us need to help us feel secure and be independent.

However to ensure the safety of everyone, those who have health challenges, or injuries, or are simply aging, may need to adapt their driving skills and/or their vehicle to ensure they can continue to keep their independence.

There’s a range of reasons why having an evaluation with a Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist at Adaptive Driving Solutions, LLC is recommended, for example…

  • If you have had changes in your medical status since your permit/license was provided by the DMV, 
  • If you no longer meet the typical DMV guidelines for issuance of a permit/license, eg due to visual or physical change, 
  • If you need a Rehabilitation Permit (anyone who either does not have a valid permit or license and has had a medical change) 
  • If you have had age-related changes that impact safety due to significantly diminished cognitive, visual or physical abilities,
  • If you have surpassed the number of accidents/points available to you in the DMV system,
  • If you have had modifications or restrictions added to your current permit/license.

You could assume that the DMV or Driver Education facilities can help in these circumstances, but unfortunately both have limitations which prevent them from helping you all the way through from assessment, recommendations, training and certification to get you back on the road – safely!

No one wants to lose their independence if it’s avoidable, and that’s why we’re here …

What we do at Adaptive Driving Solutions

We provide a driving program to help you get safely and confidently on the road, which consists of three distinct areas:

a) Pre-driver evaluation : 

  • Age related (our youngest driver was 14 and our oldest 104!)
  • Medically related (for those with an illness or injury that can impact their physical, visual, or cognitive abilities)

b) On road evaluation :

  • A practical evaluation for new or experienced drivers in our program vehicle

c) Rehabilitation & Training :

  • For all those who want to drive despite medical, physical, cognitive or visual challenges
  • Prescribing vehicle modifications / adaptive equipment where necessary
  • Providing training to help you adapt to the new equipment and drive to the proficiency of the State of CO standards

The sessions take place with Denise Kaplan who is an Occupational Therapist as well as a Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist, which makes the whole process much easier for you.
