Can You Drive with Parkinson's Disease?

Yes, early in the course of Parkinson’s disease one can usually drive.  However, each situation is different and driving may not be recommended in cases with cognitive impairment or impaired reflexes.  As the disease progresses, driving needs to be reassessed typically annually.  If driving safety is in question, this can be formally assessed through a driving evaluation done by a rehab center.
