1. Goals and history
First things first, you will discuss your driving goals, current supports, and medical and driving history.
2. Skills and road rules
Next, the DTOT will complete a physical, sensory, and cognitive screening of the skills you need to drive, and complete some brief road rule tests.
Once the above information has been obtained, the DTOT will book in another meeting to go through the on–road component.
3. Hit the road!
Now, you’ll do the practical driving assessment (aka, the fun part!). This can look different for everyone, but you’ll likely be driving a dual-control vehicle, where the driving instructor will take you through various intersections to test your skills.
During the on-road portion of your OTDA, you’ll discuss vehicle modifications and figure out what’s best for you and your needs. If you do not require modifications, the OTDA will likely take the form of a lesson, with activities from the passenger seat. Your DTOT will then link you with relevant supports to help you achieve your goals.
