Driving Evaluation FAQ

How do I get an evaluation started?
Discuss your readiness for driving with your doctor and your rehabilitation team.  Obtain a prescription for a driving evaluation, and contact Function Rehabilitation to begin the process.

What does a driving evaluation cost?
Contact Function Rehabilitation for information regarding private pay rates.

Will my insurance cover the driving evaluation?
If a traumatic brain injury is the result of an automobile accident, no-fault insurance will frequently pay for an evaluation.  Because medical insurance companies do not consider driving a medical necessity, driving evaluations generally are not covered by major medical plans.

Where are driving evaluations available?
Evaluations can be performed throughout Michigan.

Why should I have a driving evaluation if my license is still valid?
Although your license is still valid, you may not have medical clearance to drive.  In the event that you have experienced a medical change that can affect driving, the major concern is safety.  If you successfully complete a driving evaluation, a report is written with recommendations to indicate that you can be medically cleared to drive.  This report is to become part of your medical records.
