This study examined the relationship of clinical and road portions of Vanderbilt University Medical Center's driver evaluation. Data were collected retrospectively on adults with mild cognitive impairment or dementia. Findings revealed a significant relationship between the driving recommendation and the road assessment scores but not the clinical scores. Results indicated a need for OT practitioners to explore clinical assessment methods to more accurately predict road performance for determining fitness-to-drive recommendations.
