The purpose of the project was to document and evaluate current Australian practice in the assessment of drivers with disabilities. This was achieved by means of: a survey of everyone trained in one of the two Australian courses for occupational therapists in driver assessment and rehabilitation; detailed personal interviews in each Australian state and territory with people, mostly occupational therapists, known to be active in driver assessment; obtaining information from the licensing authorities of each state and territory concerning their practices in relation to the assessment of drivers with disabilities; a review of published literature concerned with the documentation, evaluation and development if such assessment practices.
