Abstract

Most on-road assessments do not make use of standardized scoring to determine driver safety. The current study sought to find a subset of driving errors that were related to on-road Pass and Fail outcomes in a group of 60 older drivers with cognitive impairment, and that were also considered important contributors to a Fail outcome by the driving specialist occupational therapist who administered the assessment. A number of useful errors were found that suggest that even a non-standardized driving assessment could incorporate a short list of driving errors that may assist in the determination of driving ability.
