Drivers Assessment and Training outcomes

2020 outcomes

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, mental health, medical challenges, or changes due to aging may benefit from our services. Since 1978, Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute has been a leader in driver assessment and training for seniors and people with disabilities.

Courage Kenny Driver Assessment is a Minnesota state licensed driving school. We require all people complete a driver assessment prior to beginning any training. The majority of our people participate in a Comprehensive Driver Assessment which is a three-hour appointment.  During the assessment, people participate in an interview, clinical testing to evaluate the critical physical, visual and cognitive skills used while driving, and complete an on-the-road performance in one of the Courage Kenny vehicles. Outcomes from the assessment are discussed with each person at the conclusion of the assessment.  Outcomes may be to continue/return to driving with or without restrictions, completing training/driving lessons, driving cessation or other recommendations.
