About our Driver Rehabilitation Program

Available at On With Life’s outpatient clinics in Ankeny and Coralville, our program includes an initial clinical assessment and comprehensive driving evaluation with a specialist to assess current skills and address deficits. A combination of our expertise in neuro rehabilitation and driver safety then helps us work with individuals on further training with a specially outfitted driver rehabilitation car and adaptive equipment.

Our goal is to work with you to identify the best options for safe, community mobility. See details below!

The clinic evaluation, depending on need, may take up to two and half hours. During this evaluation, a trained therapist will evaluate:

  • Reaction time
  • Processing speed
  • Vision
  •  Attention
  • Judgement
  • Gross motor skills 

If an individual successfully passese the clinical evaluation, they will participate in a behind-the-wheel evaluation in On With Life’s outfitted driver rehabilitation car to assess on-the-road safety. 

The outcomes of the evaluation will be sent to the referring physician. The physician may contact the DOT if restrictions or driving retirement is recommended at this time. The participant may or may not be re-evaluated in the future. Ongoing therapy may be recommended to address further needs of driving rehabilitation or future re-evaluation. 

The comprehensive driver evaluation cost is not covered by insurance and is available by private pay only. The fee must be paid in full prior to the evaluation. Please call the Ankeny office (515-289-9696) or Coralville office (319-259-6224) for further information on cost.

The physician will send orders to On With Life for the Driver Rehabilitation program. Upon receipt of completed the Driver Evaluation & Training program enrollment packet, On With Life will reach out to set up an appointment.
