Research Project - ASSESSING FITNESS TO DRIVE IN PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA There is currently a lack of consistency in the methods used to establish whether a person with dementia is safe to continue driving. This research project, run by the University of Nottingham and funded by the Alzheimer’s Society, aims to raise awareness of this problem, and develop a more rigorous method of assessing safety to drive. We intend to find out whether performance on a variety of cognitive tests (e.g. tests of memory, reasoning, speed of information processing), can predict safety to drive in people with dementia. This may allow us to identify those people who should be referred to a specialised driving assessment centre. For people to be involved in this study, we need them to: 1. Have dementia. 2. Be currently driving. 3. Have a valid driving licence. 4. Be willing to be assessed on tests of memory, reasoning and concentration which take about an hour. 5. Be willing to be assessed driving on the road in Nottingham, Derby or Chesterfield.
