What clinical tools can help assess the ability of elderly patients to drive safely? Evidence-based answer: Several tools may help a clinician assess the safety of elderly drivers. These include the Assessment of Driving- Related Skills (ADReS), DriveABLE, and the clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) scale. Unfortunately, all of them have substantial limitations, making them only marginally useful in the clinical setting (SOR: B, cohort studies).
