UF launches SmartDrive Driver Rehabilitation service

GAINESVILLE, Fla. The University of Florida has launched a service that will help drivers with medical conditions stay safe.

UF launched the SmartDrive Driver Rehabilitation service, which seeks to improve the driving skills of older adults and anyone who has medical conditions that may affect their driving.

Those who are interested will be evaluated on conditions they have that makes driving difficult.

The client then can use a test vehicle in the driving simulator lab to test their capabilities.

Tools will be given to the client that will make them drive more efficiently.

“Essentially we have no driver rehabilitation services between Pensacola, Jacksonville, and Orlando. So we are really excited to bring this service to Gainesville and to serve the population in Gainesville and in North Central Florida,” UF SmartDrive Director Sherrilene Classen said.
