Related services
Sanford Health's driver evaluation and training program was created to help you resume your independent lifestyle following a disabling illness or injury.

The first in North Dakota, our therapists are certified driver rehabilitation specialists who will assess your ability to drive safely and can also train you in the use of adaptive equipment and assist with vehicle modification and selection for specific needs.

General guidelines to determine when a professional driving assessment is necessary:

  • Physical limitations that may require adaptive driving equipment
  • Cognitive impairment that may cause problems in identifying driving hazards, predicting situations and deciding on an appropriate response
  • Visual impairments that affect the ability to safely operate a motor vehicle
  • Delayed reaction time
  • Apprehension about an individual's driving ability
