Managing Partners

Steps to Success

The Evaluation is administered in three parts and conducted by state-certified personnel.

  1. The Health Questionnaires
  2. The Clinical Evaluation
  3. The Behind-The-Wheel Evaluation

The CODE/CCDE programs provide a unique product extension for driving schools that boosts business and profitability, especially during slower months like school terms. As the number of older drivers continues to increase, so does the demand for driving evaluations. It’s a win-win product both for your organization and your client base. 

If your school is like most other driving schools across America, you will occasionally get a call from an older driver or their family member asking if you can evaluate the older person’s driving skills. You may even get a few calls from someone who has suffered from a stroke and completed therapy to assess their driving skills on the road. The truth is that the older driver market segment is the fastest-growing segment in the United States. As our population grows and people live longer, they will want to drive as long as possible. Therefore, you can expect to make between $3,000 and $6,000 per month by evaluating 10-20 clients per month in a population of 250,000, which we think is a great extension to a 10 am to 4 pm M-F job. You will spend 1.5-2 hours with each client.

Your customers will come through referrals (see Referring Partners).

Our marketing plan is solid and brings clients to your door.

In 2017, Al Barber began looking for a new product extension for his Georgia-based, family-owned driving school. Barber’s Driving School has been around since 1964 and was founded by his parents. Al began to discover the opportunities in the older driver evaluation market and joined the Older Driver Task Force of the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. The Task Force comprises many stakeholders interested in the older driver transportation problem, including occupational therapists/driver rehabilitation specialists, Georgia Department of Transportation officials, people who design our highways, neurologists, ophthalmologists, and other physicians. The task force is chaired by a member of the Georgia Department of Public Health, under the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, whose mission is to make our roadways safer for all users. 

While attending meetings and hearing about all the challenges and issues, Al began working on real solutions to the problems by creating the CODE-CCDE programs: Certified Older Driving Evaluations for drivers 65 and older. After establishing partnerships with hospitals, they began referring their clients to him, many of whom were younger than 65. This was how CCDE, Certified Comprehensive Driving Evaluations for drivers under the age of 65, was born. Many of the CCDE’s clients are teenagers (see CODE-CCDE programs), and many of our clients may need a modified vehicle (see 3-Tier System). But Tier 1 clients do not require vehicle modifications, and this is where new Managing Partners start anyway. More than 80% of your clients will be Tier 1 referrals.

Finally, it took the development of a software application that allowed all partners to work together to produce a final driver evaluation report (see CODE-CCDE software). The entire program has been tested and proven. The CODE-CCDE program is now the market leader in Georgia and Alabama and is well on its way to becoming nationwide.

Driver Evaluation Software

Our HIPAA compliant software application connects electronically through its web-based interface from the CODE and CCDE clients to the evaluating partners and stakeholders in order to gather and compile all necessary information to produce the CODE and CCDE Final Reports. No software download required.

The final report includes all health questionnaires completed by the client online and all clinical evaluation assessments (Cognitive, Physical and Visual), and the road test evaluation scores. In addition, the application generates summary reports of concern from the questionnaires and medication list. 

The Application combines all of this information to produce electronically a final CODE Report and/or a final CCDE Report and any certificates needed to evidence the client’s ability to continue to drive with or without conditions, the need for periodic re-examinations, or the need for the driver to cease driving.


Who will see the written results of the Evaluation?

The driver being evaluated has primary access to the evaluation outcome and to persons or entities that are driver-authorized. Drivers often request that copies be sent to physicians, adult children, the state DMV, DPS, DDS, insurance companies, judges, and others.

If I don’t pass my evaluation, will I lose my Driver’s license?

This depends on whether your physician makes a referral to your state licensing agency. If an individual can no longer drive safely, the physician will complete any medical review forms required by your state’s driver’s licensing agency. The overall results from your driver evaluation will be included as part of the medical report.

Who administers the Evaluation?

The Evaluation is administered in 3 parts conducted by state-certified personnel.

  • The Health Questionnaires can be completed in the comfort of the driver’s home. There are 7 comprehensive health questionnaires in potential areas of concern: legal; mental and physical health; behavioral health; and family, friends, and caregivers.
  • The Clinical Evaluation is performed by an Associate Partner who is a licensed Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist. It can also be performed by others who have been trained to administer such tests. Typically, this will be an established hospital with an outpatient Physical/Occupational therapy service.
  • The Functional behind-the-wheel evaluation is performed by a certified driving instructor from one of our driving school Managing Partner. The instructors are experienced, friendly, patient, and highly supportive.

Whose vehicle will be used for the Evaluation?

All evaluations are conducted in the managing partner’s vehicle, such as a vehicle from the Driving School.

How often do I need to take the Evaluation?

Older drivers should take the evaluation every 6-9 months if they have been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, muscular degeneration, and other degenerative conditions. An evaluation may be necessary in less than 6 months, given situational changes in the driver’s life.

When will the Evaluation be conducted?

Generally, evaluations are administered 5 days a week from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. Check with your network provider for their hours of operation. All evaluations are given by appointment only. Contact the network provider for available dates and times.

  • The Clinical Evaluation is performed by a certified Occupational Therapist during an outpatient visit conducted at one of our network providers
