Pre-Driving Assessments: Gain Experience, Build Confidence, and Get Information

In Driving Assessment and Skills Articles, Featured, News by Jon Grobstick

Imagine driving down the road, the wind blowing through your hair with your favorite music playing loud!  It’s just you and your car with all the possibilities of the open road.  If you are someone with a disability, the freedom that comes with driving a car may be something you did not think was possible for you.  Or perhaps an acquired disability has taken this freedom away.  What if there was a way to change that?  Could driving be a goal you can achieve?

ERI’s Pre-Driving Assessment Services provides people who have a disability with feedback about their driving abilities. It gives hands-on experience, so you can build confidence and get valuable information about moving forward with driving training.
