Predicting driving ability in Parkinsons Disease patients is discussed in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease, 04/09/2013. Dr. Crizzle AM et al from the Department of Occupational Therapy, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA  compare the predictive power of the unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) motor section, the Modified Hoehn and Yahr and the Rapid Paced Walk Test to the pass to fail outcome of a formal road test in PD drivers.

The group that look at movement Disorders and neurorestoration together with the Department of Neurology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA conclude that the gold standard for screening should always be the road test.
