WHAT IS A DRIVER EVALUATION?
A driver evaluation is completed by a qualified therapist with specialized driving rehabilitation training (Certified Driving Rehab Specialist – CDRS). He/She will complete clinical and on-road assessments of your abilities.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY EVALUATION?
Immediately after your comprehensive evaluation, a CDRS will make recommendations based on your results; he/she will verbally review the recommendations with you. Within 7 days, DRCE will provide a written report to whomever you designate via written consent and/or to whomever necessary (doctor, Department of Motor Vehicles, etc.).
DOES MY MEDICAL INSURANCE COVER THE COST?
There is no simple answer. While it’s not common for insurance to consider a driving evaluation “medically necessary,” we can help you navigate your insurance company’s claim submission and reimbursement process.
HOW MUCH WILL THE EVALUATION COST AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The cost of the evaluation may vary depending on your needs; you may be eligible for funding assistance. Please contact the office to discuss your specific needs so we can provide you with a cost estimate for your situation.
For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, money orders, all major credit cards, and CareCredit. To find out more and/or apply for CareCredit, click here.

No. Our unique driver assessment and training vehicles are equipped with dual brakes and adaptive equipment options for drivers with physical limitations. Our vehicles are also insured for evaluation and training purposes.
