What about driving tests?

Answer: Share your concerns with your health care team. Your doctor may recommend that the driver stop driving immediately and inform the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) of their opinion, or they may suggest a driving test. In Nova Scotia there are three options for driving tests: the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Centre, DriveABLE™, and the Registry of Motor Vehicles. This table compares the three options.
