Occupational Therapist Locator

If you have concerns about a senior's driving ability, it may be worthwhile to visit an occupational therapist (OT) who is trained in driving assessment and evaluation. A trained OT can help seniors determine how health impairments and other limitations may be affecting their driving and then help develop and implement a plan for how he or she can reduce their risks and stay safely mobile.
 
The locator below only contains information about California Occupational Therapist Driving Programs. If your County is not listed below, it may be helpful to search in nearby Counties for a program. For programs in other states, please visit the AOTA Driving Program Database.
 
California OT's, to be included in this database, please submit your program/business information.
