REFERRALS

Referrals for a driving assessment can be initiated by a GP/specialist, allied health professional, client or family member. All referrals must be accompanied by medical clearance and certificate from a GP/specialist, and a vision assessment completed by an Optometrist/Ophthalmologist.

Referrals will be accepted for funded clients (eg with funding from WorkCover QLD or NDIS) and private / self-funded clients.

Referrals must include:

1) Referral form and clearance to undergo OT driving assessment signed by GP/specialist

2) QLD Transport medical certificate signed by GP/specialist "for purposes of OT driving assessment"

--> refer to the Guide: "How to complete a Medical Certificate" to help with this

3) Vision Assessment Form to be completed by an Optometrist / Ophthalmologist prior to driving assessment

4) NDIS Plan

5) Any reports previously completed by community / paediatric Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Neurologist, Psychiatrists, Physiotherapist. We need as much information as possible about the client in order to provide the most accurate assessment and recommendations for driving. 

Withholding information can result in an inaccurate assessment and incorrect recommendations - which could lead to significant risks for the client and the community.
