Abstract

Licensing authorities in different countries differ in their approaches to the use of age based licensing, medical fitness and driving assessments. This article describes a new licensing policy introduced in Singapore in 2006 whereby driving assessment by occupational therapists became a critical stage in the licensing process for older taxi drivers. Preliminary data on the older taxi drivers are presented. Implications for future studies and clinical intervention are discussed.
