Welcome to Drive ON!
Driving is a valued activity of daily life. Driving allows us to be independent in community mobility, which promotes our health, well-being, and participation in meaningful life events. At Drive ON!, we provide comprehensive driver assessment and rehabilitation services, which includes evaluation, training and education. Evaluation is completed by a registered Occupational Therapist (OT) who has obtained additional education and training in assessing driving capabilities and is a driver rehabilitation specialist. Training services are provided by the OT and two licensed driving instructors. We are based in scenic Peterborough, Ontario and serve Kawartha Lakes as well as the surrounding Central East region.
Drive ON! Comprehensive Driver Rehabilitation is included in the Ontario Ministry of Transportation's (MTO) panel of approved functional assessment centers to complete Functional Driving Assessments for Medical Conditions as well as for Vision Waiver.
You may benefit from a Drive ON! assessment or our rehabilitation services if you are someone who has physical disabilities or serious injuries who wants to drive or the desire to ensure you continue to be safe on the road, have questions from family and/or a physician regarding fitness to drive, have medical conditions such as mild cognitive impairment, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, amputation, arthritis, cerebral palsy, age related concerns or you are taking medications that may be affecting your ability to drive. You may have a need for adaptive equipment or modifications to drive or ride as a passenger or you may be experiencing stress/anxiety/fear related to driving. If any of these situations pertain to you, contact Drive ON! today for further information or to book an appointment.
Our goal is to work with you to maintain your independence in safe driving.
