For many of us, being able to drive means independence, mobility and a sense of control in our lives. Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute’s unique Driver Assessment and Training service consists of both assessment and training.
New or experienced drivers with visual, cognitive, physical, medical challenges, changes due to aging, disability or mental health issues may benefit from our services. For more than 35 years, Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute has been the leader in driver assessment and training for seniors and people with disabilities.
