An Evaluation of Driving Ability in a Simulator: A Good Predictor of Driving Ability after Stroke?

The aim of this pilot-study was to evaluate the predictive quality of a driving evaluation in a simulator for people with stroke. Twenty-seven participants with stroke completed a driving evaluation in a technically advanced driving simulator. The participants also completed an on-road driving evaluation with a pass or fail outcome. Measures generated from the assessment tool, P-Drive, were compared to the on-road driving evaluation, in order to determine a definitive cut-off score. The definitive cut-off score of P-Drive was determined to 1,5 logits, however this score did not show satisfactory sensitivity. Instead of a definitive cut-off score, a cut-off zone of 1,4 to 1,7 logits was recommended. Six drivers within the cut-off zone were recommended for further evaluation of their driving ability.
