Senior Driver Assessments (SDA)
In Australia, drivers who are 75 or 80 years or older are required to have an annual medical assessment conducted by their doctor to keep their driver’s license. The purpose of this assessment is to ensure that older drivers can drive safely and confidently on the road, taking into account any age-related health conditions that may affect their driving skills. By completing these assessments, senior drivers can demonstrate their commitment to road safety and maintain their driving privileges. Additionally, it allows older drivers to continue enjoying the freedom and independence that driving provides, while also ensuring the safety of themselves and others on the road.
- If you fall into this category, your GP may require you to undergo a driving assessment before issuing your medical certificate. The main purpose of this assessment is to evaluate your driving abilities and ensure that you can safely drive on the road, regardless of any age-related health conditions that may affect your performance. By taking these assessments, you can demonstrate your commitment to road safety and maintain your driving privileges. These assessments can also identify any areas that require improvement and provide the necessary guidance to help you become a better and safer driver.
What is A Senior Driver Assessment?
A Senior Driver Assessment is a thorough evaluation of your driving skills and performance, conducted by a licensed driving assessor who is registered with Senior Driver Assessments (SDA) as a driving school. These assessments typically take place on the roads that you regularly drive on, starting from your home.
The driving assessor will pick you up from your home and take you on a test drive. During the assessment, they will observe your driving carefully and may ask questions to better understand your abilities. Afterward, they will submit the assessment report to your GP. You will also receive a copy of the report for your personal records.
Once the assessment is finished, the driving assessor will bring you back to your starting location. At Senior Driver Assessments, we understand the importance of ensuring that you can continue to drive safely and confidently on the road. Our assessments help you achieve this goal by identifying any areas that need improvement and providing the necessary guidance to help you become a better and safer driver.
