Be alert for any of the following medically related issues, which may indicate a need for a comprehensive driving evaluation with an occupational therapist.
If any of the above issues exist and you are concerned about the client’s driving safety, you should refer the client for a driving evaluation.
A representative from INDEPENDENCE DRIVE or an affiliated agency will contact the client to schedule an appointment.
Florida law allows you to confidentially report a driver if you are concerned. Reporting a driver DOES NOT indicate immediate license revocation. Reporting to the Medical Review Board merely opens a case for evaluating the driver, which includes obtaining written documentation from the driver's physician. For more information on medical reporting in Florida , go to: http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us//forms/72190.html Please note that based on Florida Statute 322.126 Report of disability to department, reports remain confidential including the name of the reporting party and “no civil or criminal action may be brought against any physician, person, or agency who provides the information”.
