The capability to drive safely involves a number of cognitive, physical, and sensorimotor abilities that may be impacted by injury, illness, or substances that influence alertness. Neuropsychological measures are an important component of a multidisciplinary approach for evaluation of driving capacity. Clinicians should become familiar with measures that have the best predictive validity so they may incorporate a patient's neurocognitive strengths and weaknesses in decisions about driving ability.
