11.04.17 Medical Fitness to Drive Assessment - DriveABLE

I had a bad car accident at the end of last year. The Police suggested that I should take lessons from Medical Driving Assessments NZ.  So I’ve had 3 lessons from MDA. (Advanced Driving Skills for Experienced Drivers)

The first time I met Anne (Occupational Therapist NZOTR, NZTA approved medical fitness to drive assessor & DriveABLE evaluator) I was a little nervous, but she was so friendly and warm hearted towards me. This immediately made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I thought perhaps she is a psychologist as well.
Armando (NZTA approved instructor & course provider, and DriveABLE evaluator) was also so friendly and patient. English is my second language, and when I didn’t understand the information immediately, Anne and Armando explained it again and again. Also Armando taught me how to avoid car accidents, which is information you would not be able to find in the NZ Road Code book.
 When I finished the first lesson, I knew straightaway it was worth it.
I finished the last lesson yesterday and I’ve got the ‘Certificate of Completion’ from MDA. I feel I am much more confident when I am driving now, and I am sure it has the reduced the potential for me to have another car accident.
I have told Anne I will come back to have more lessons from MDA when I reach 75 years old.

去年年底我发生了一场车祸,警察建议我去

Medical Driving Assessments NZ 上课。

当我第一次去上课时,心里有点紧张。可遇到Anne非常热情友好地接待,我马上就一点儿都不紧张。而且我觉得她不仅仅是评估家,还是心理学家。教练Armando也是非常友好耐心,还教了我许多书本上学不到的驾车经验。英语是我第二语言,我如有什么不懂的地方,Anne 与Armando都非常耐心的解释直到我理解为止。上完第一节课,我马上意识到我来上课是对的而且付的学费是值得的。

昨天我完成了最后一节,并拿到了MDA发给我的证书。在驾车方面我比以前更有经验更有心信了。

我与Anne说,我到75岁时,我一定要去她那儿再上课。

Kind regards

19.10.15 Medical Fitness to Drive Assessment - DriveABLE

“For many years, I believed that my mother was a good driver. It wasn’t until she met Anne did I realise her cognitive skills were impaired to the point where it affected her driving capabilities. As a student currently undertaking the neurosurgery pathway, I can definitely say that Anne’s expertise with the medical cognitive sciences is just spot on! Coupled with her professionalism and her altruistic persona, anyone undertaking her services is assured to be in safe hands.

 

Armando, my mother’s DriveABLE evaluator and driving instructor, was also instrumental to my mother’s driving tuition. His admirable thoroughness, alongside his medical and driving background,  ensured that my mother’s competency was well-developed and, henceforth, made me appreciate the fact that she was definitely receiving a sound tuition.

Thank you, Anne and Armando, for the tremendous effort you put into ensuring my mother was competent enough to drive safely again!”

“I thought I was a good, careful driver but I was involved in an accident which made me rethink my ideas.

I had an assessment with Driveable and to my shock, was found wanting.

I have since had lessons and attained a Certificate in Advanced Driving Skills and I am now a lot more confident in my driving safety and ability.

Thank you Anne, I appreciate your friendly approach and professionalism.

“As MD of a creative agency I recoginized that my team work long hours in front of their computers every day. For this reason I employed the services of Anne Malloy to assess the work station set ups of my entire team. Anne was very thorough and took the time to properly assess each persons seated postures and working styles as well as finding out if anyone had any particular issues that caused discomfort. Feedback from my team has been very positive and I have no hesitation in recommending her services.”

” I went in to the store myself today and asked each team member what they had learnt and taken from your visit, and it was heartening to see that so many of your points had been remembered and consciously acted upon. I am hopeful that we can keep up with your recommendations to keep everybody healthy and happy in the workplace!”

“Thank you so much for the caring courtesy that you showed Aunty today. The testing went off much better than had I hoped and I think you must have an amazing skill set for encouraging the reluctant elderly.

Please also thank the Driving Instructor for me, especially as she rearranged her day to fit Aunty’s test in. I am glad that Aunty was able to do the drive because I don’t think she would have felt it was a proper test without it.”

A sampleof other emails received following the GPCME presentation, on Cognitive Impairment and Driving :

“PS really enjoyed your presentation at the CME conference and by coincidence the second patient I saw on Monday was a 92 year old with cognitive impairment , and I felt much more confident dealing with the situation!”

“Thanks for your really good talk at the GPCME conference. This is something we GPs really struggle with. A patient said to me recently, ” if I can’t drive I might as well be dead”.
