Primary objective: To identify the current legal situation and professional practice in assisting persons with traumatic brain injury ( TBI) to return to safe driving after injury.
Methods and procedures: A brief review of relevant literature, a description of the current statutory and quasi- statutory authorities regulating return to driving after TBI in the UK and a description of the nature and resolution of clinical and practical dilemmas facing professionals helping return to safe driving after TBI. Each of the 15 UK mobility centres was contacted and literature requested; in addition a representative of each centre responded to a structured telephone survey.
Main outcome and results: The current situation in the UK is described, with a brief analysis of the strengths and weaknesses both of the current statutory situation, and also the practical situation ( driving centres), with suggestions for improvements in practice.
Conclusion: Although brain injury may cause serious limitations in driving ability, previous drivers are not routinely assessed or advised regarding return to driving after TBI.
