Samenvatting Fitness to drive decisions are largely based on assessing performance on a series of laboratory tests and/or a road test. Many researchers have attempted to develop laboratory tests with the power to predict on-road driving performance (Marottoli et al, 1994; Marottoli et al, 1998; Hunter-Zaworski, 1990; Hunt et al, 1993; Janke & Hersch, 1997). Although some such laboratory tests have been identified for specific disease categories, they are used at present either exclusively by researchers or inconsistently in clinical practice. This part of the IMMORTAL research program first aims to group together tests shown to predict driving performance for cognitive impairment only (dementia) and physical impairment only (arthritis) groups. Second, it aims to assess the predictive power of these groups of tests, leading to the development of testing protocols for these driver groups.
