Abstract

To guide decision making about driving ability, some patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) undergo specialist driving assessment. However, decisions about driving safety in most patients need to be made without this definitive test. There is no consensus on what predicts unsafe driving in PD, nor a validated prediction tool to guide clinician decision making and the need to refer for further assessment.
