What is an Occupational Therapy Driver Assessment?
An Occupational Therapy Driver Assessment (OTDA) focuses on determining the impact a disability or medical condition has on your safety to drive, and differs to a Department of Transport Practical Driving Assessment.
An OTDA is comprehensive and conducted by one of Indigo's accredited Occupational Therapist who has completed certified training in Driving Assessment.
An assessment is conducted in two parts, clinical and on-road, and both are conducted on the same day. After your assessment you will be provided with feedback and a detailed report. Your report will also be provided by Indigo NDIS Driving Services to your referee and the Department of Transport; who make the final licensing decision.
Indigo conducts assessments across the Perth metropolitan area from our Nedlands office and operate regionally from Bunbury, Mandurah and Northam.
