CAN YOU DRIVE IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?
Most states, including California, list these diseases as a requirement for physician report to the DMV. Multiple sclerosis is not in that category, but patients with disability may have risk increased driving.
Many occupational therapy centers offer driver’s evaluation. Unfortunately, health plans and Medicare do not cover this evaluation, and costs are usually $400 to $500. A new study shows that physicians are usually accurate in their appraisal of their patients’ driving capabilities.
