William Merritt Centre
William Merritt offers a regional Driving Assessment service provided by experienced occupational therapists and approved driving instructors. The aim of an assessment is to check physical and cognitive ability to drive a vehicle in safety and comfort and to offer advice on aids and adaptations that may assist driving.
Our clients are all ages, from young people looking to find the adaptations needed to start driving for the first time to clients who have experienced strokes, been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or live with other medical conditions which may require them to have their driving assessed.We also offer passenger assessments to help a passenger ensure the vehicle they use has all the correct adaptations to make sure they can easily get in and out of it. This may be with a wheelchair or scooter stowage.
