Older Driver Resources

** Note that the SENSE-MD project has collated this information but does not endorse the resources listed below.

1. The Council on Aging of Ottawa has collected information about older driver resources here:

Workshop: Getting where you need to go

2. Ministry of Transportation of Ontario:

How to renew a G drivers licence

How to renew your driver's licence - Video

3. Individual Driving Assessments: Occupational Therapists (OTs) whose practice involves driver assessment (there will likely be a cost with this service).

Use the Find an OT service on the www.caot.ca website:

Find an Occupational Therapist

Put in the city and then select Driver assessment & rehabilitation and you will get a list of OTs (who offer driver assessment services) and their contact information.

The CAOT also offers this information to the public (although the page is designed for OTs):   https://caot.ca/site/prac-res/pr/nationalblueprintod
