The naturalistic driving observation is an appropriate method for assessing fitness-to-drive of elderly drivers. By utilizing this unique assessment, real-life driving performance is captured, enabling the reduction of test-related discomfort associated with the current gold standard test of driving ability, the standard on-road driving evaluation. OTs could consider incorporating this assessment that is structured, score-based, and individualized for each driver.
