Driver Rehabilitation Consultants Program

Pioneer's Driver Rehabilitation Consultants offers a specialized drivers rehabilitation program. To achieve the mobility and independence that driving can bring, collaborate with our team of Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist (CDRS) and Driver Rehabilitation Specialist (DRS).

We can assist clients with some disabilities and driving limitations; especially, those drivers who are returning to driving following an injury or illness, such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, amputation, cerebral palsy, and other limitations.

Our program can provide services to drivers with some neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and differential diagnosis, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and other disorders.

Our CDRS can assist clients in determining their fitness to drive using the tools provided in ADED's Industry Standards and Guidelines.

Prior to starting the on-line registration, all clients must have a current permit or driving license. The permit or driving license is required to participate in Step 1, Initial Evaluation.

After completing the on-line registration, Pioneer will email the client our Driver Rehab Intake Questionnaire. Click here: Driver Rehab Intake Questionnaire to view the questionnaire.

Prior to scheduling any service at Pioneer, the client must complete all pages of the questionnaire and return the entire Driver Rehab Intake Questionnaire package to Pioneer.


Pioneer is an authorized Texas Workforce Solutions (TWS) vendor. Pioneer recommends that TWS counselors use our Driver Rehab Program Processing Guidelines to aid in processing request for service authorization numbers, as well as Pioneer's quotes and invoices.


  • (Step 1) Driver Rehab Initial Evaluation

    Driver Rehabilitation Initial evaluation consists of two individual sessions. The first session is the Clinical Evaluation. The second session is the Behind-The-Wheel Vehicle Fitting. Before moving forward in the program, all clients must first have an initial evaluation to determine their ability to operate a vehicle safely.

  • (Step 2) Driver Rehab Behind-The-Wheel Training

    All behind-the-wheel training sessions are performed by a state Certified Driver Rehab Specialist (CDRS), or a Driver Rehab Specialist (DRS) in Pioneer's specially modified vehicle.

  • (Step 3) Driver Rehab Equipment Prescription

    Pioneer is acutely aware of the equipment options that are available on the market for car, truck, and van modifications. We work closely with adaptive equipment dealers and funding sources to provide the right piece of equipment that best meets the client's needs.

  • Fitness To Drive Evaluation

    Driving involves a complex and rapidly changing cycle that requires a level of skill and the ability to interact simultaneously with both the vehicle and the external environment. Given these requirements, it follows that many body systems needs to be functioning for safe driving. Aging, injury, or disease may affect one's ability for safe driving.
