About Us

We are the global leader in evidence-based assessment technology for the fair and accurate assessment of cognitively at-risk drivers. We protect safe drivers from misidentification, based solely on their medical condition or age, and accurately identify unsafe drivers to protect them, their families and other road users.


What We Do

Through award-winning university research, we've developed the DCAT - The DriveABLE Cognitive Assessment Tool; It's the only cognitive assessment shown to be highly predictive of actual on-road performance. We've also developed DORE - The DriveABLE On-Road Evaluation; the first behind the wheel assessment that tests drivers on their cognitive ability alone.




"Your group did an assessment of my father’s driving ability several years ago. Not only did it provide accurate information for my father’s doctor, it also let his family know that he really should not be behind the wheel. We were aware of his inability but could not convince him on our own."

Welcome to DriveABLE


At the request of physicians, Dr. Allen Dobbs and his team at the Neurocognitive Research Unit of the Northern Alberta Regional Geriatric Program, were asked to find a test which could assess patients who were still driving and had a cognitively impairing medical condition.

After an exhaustive literature review, no such assessment test was found. The physician group then tasked Dr. Dobb’s team with developing an evidence-based test that was specific to driving and cognitive impairment.

Eight years and over 1500 subjects later, the team had developed both an In-Office and On-Road test which, together, formed the only assessment system worldwide that assessed a driver based on the level of cognitive impairment caused by their medical condition.

DriveABLE is a University spin-off company, which was established because of a large, and growing need in the community for fair, evidence-based assessments of medically at-risk drivers with generalized cognitive impairment.
