The first step will be to have an assessment with us to determine your child’s needs and which adaptations would suit them best. A driving assessment will also give some indication of their ability to learn to drive, if this is appropriate. Contact us to arrange an assessment.
We regularly see people who may not have driven for several months or even years. We take this into account throughout the assessment and in our recommendations.
We are happy for your friend/relative to accompany you during the office based part of the assessment to reduce anxiety but we generally do not allow family and friends to sit in on the road assessment.
The fee will depend on who is referring you. Currently there is a fee for self-referral driving assessments but not for our other services. Click here for a list of our current fees, and to find out the different ways to pay.
If you cannot discuss the subject of driving with your relative (and we know this can be tricky), try to speak to their GP, or the DVLA (advice line 0300 790 6806). Medical investigations may begin after that.
