Dear Health Professional
In line with Government guidance, RDAC will not be conducting assessments and centres will be closed between 4th November and 2nd December inclusive.
We are working hard to contact all clients who have an assessment booked with us, those needing to be rebooked and those who are waiting to be booked will be contacted during this period. We are continuing to accept new referrals and some RDAC staff will remain in the office, should you wish to contact us. At all times we will be following government advice and we will update the site to keep you informed.
Please do contact us if you have any queries. Please note our new head office address below.
The RDAC is committed to the rehabilitation of individuals who have a medical condition, particularly when it affects their driving ability. We are keen to promote links with health professionals and would encourage you to learn more about us and the services we provide. We welcome, indeed encourage research and are happy to consider other areas for assessment. Should you be interested in collaboration, please contact us.

Health professionals can refer anyone with a medical condition
NHS health professionals can refer anyone with a medical condition which could affect fitness to drive. RDAC provide a wide range of services; vehicle adaptions in order to learn to drive or to enable a return to driving, advice on vehicle access or stowing mobility equipment or, any other vehicle related query. Medical conditions could include; neurological conditions, musculoskeletal conditions, vision problems, psychiatric conditions, learning difficulties, degenerative diseases, frail, elderly or anyone with confidence issues after a break from driving. It is important that clients inform DVLA when they have a ‘notifiable’ medical condition (see DVLA rules for further advice). If the client is not currently driving then they may not need to notify DVLA until they are ready to return to driving. If in doubt please contact either DVLA directly or RDAC for advice (DVLA Tel: 0300 790 6806 or RDAC Tel: 0121 359 4222)
