“Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”
- Martha Graham
Behind-the-wheel training of the bioptic driver is not an option! It is the most crucial part of the entire process of helping a patient reach safe bioptic driving. Even previously licensed drivers must be taught how to drive with their visual impairment and how to safely use the bioptic system.
Some states have failed to fully address the need for training. Indiana has been a leading state in requiring 30 hours of behind-the-wheel training. As a result in Indiana, we have a number of outstanding driver rehabilitation specialists with extensive experience in training bioptic drivers. In this section, you will learn from a panel of some of the nation’s most experienced bioptic driving rehabilitators.
This section is created by a group of highly experienced certified driving rehabilitation speclists:

Eva Richardsville, OTR, CDRS
