Setting Up a Program

Self and Family Assessments

Various aging and traffic safety groups have developed questionnaires to help you decide if you should seek formal help in evaluating your driving abilities.

Some of these self-assessments take only a few minutes to answer. Others take longer but will give you more helpful information about your driving.
