RACV Dementia, driving and mobility guide

 

This guide is for professionals, carers, families, friends and for people with dementia. It summarises key issues surrounding driving and dementia including mobility options for people who can no longer drive

 

All people that are diagnosed with dementia are required by law to inform the Victorian driver licensing authority, VicRoads, of their condition.

The experience of giving up driving can be very difficult for many people, and the sense of grief and loss can be ongoing.
