Predictors of Driving Ability Following Stroke: Systematic Review

This review article identifies the most consistent predictors of driving ability after a stroke. The authors conducted a computerized search of numerous electronic databases from 1966 to the present. Measured outcomes included voluntary driving cessation or results of on-road driving evaluation. Studies were evaluated using the Newcastle-0ttawa Quality Assessment Scale, resulting in the inclusion of 17 eligible studies. The most useful screening tests were those assessing cognitive abilities, including the Trail Making A and B tests, the Rey-Osterreith Complex Figure Design, and the Useful Field of View Test. The authors conclude that cognitive tests that assess multiple cognitive domains relevant to driving appear to have the best reproducibility in predicting fitness to drive in people who have experienced stroke.
