Why use Drive Focus

Drive Focus was developed over the last 20 years and is based on the work of Dr. Miriam Monahan, an Occupational Therapist that specializes in cognition and driving.

Step Three
Select a Tour

There are a lot of Tours to select from within Australia, Canada, and the United States. And we keep adding more.

Each Tour has 6-7 Drives. Download a Drive and click on the 11 critical items in order of priority. Each Drive in a Tour gets progressively more challenging. When you get a score of 500 or higher the next Drive will open.

Play the Drives at different speeds. 100% is the speed that the Drive was taken when filmed. But you can also reduce the speed to 80% or 60%.

In the settings you can add the critical item marking to know when the next item is about to appear.

Your score will be reduced if you use the reduce speed and the critical item marking. But it can help to practice with these features.

Step Four
Review the score

Whether you get a score below or above 500, review the score details to see what critical items you missed. The score details description will tell you the exact item you missed. You will be able to click a link to play back a 3 second clip where the item occurred.

A score of 650-799 or more is a GOOD score. A score of 800 or higher is AMAZING!

We highly recommend shooting for AMAZING. We know you have it in you!!

What Therapists Say

About Drive Focus

The Driving Focus app is a dynamic therapeutic activity that can be incorporated into Occupational Therapy plans to address visual attention, visual scanning, information processing skills, reaction time, visual analysis, visual memory, mental tracking, visual motion sensitivity, and more.

I work primarily with clients post-TBI, and this media is awesome for many of them. The training modules are beautifully developed to develop a client’s sensitivity to ‘seeing’ specific items (stop signs, yield signs, pedestrians, etc.) short, interactive training videos measure a client’s accuracy and speed on identifying specific items. It provides quantitative outcomes and colorful visual scales that motivate a client to want to improve; with instruction and effort, a client can easily see improvement even in the first session.

Even for clients who may be a long way from actually driving, this media challenges visual and cognitive skills using a meaningful context. It is a therapeutic activity that occupational therapy practitioners working in rehab should definitely explore; I expect clinicians working in neurorehab will be delighted to add this dynamic media to their arsenal of therapeutic activities.

Drive Focus has been well received by Australian Occupational Therapists at two national conferences and during many workshops, with excitement about the opportunities for our clients and their driving. My clients find it easy and fun to use. It was a privilege to support Drive Focus with recording the Melbourne videos.

Drive Focus has taken Australia by storm! Driving Well OT in Brisbane collaborated with Miriam to bring Drive Focus to Australia, winning the Australian Road Safety Foundation award in 2021. It’s worldwide OT conference premier was in Melbourne (“Mel-bin”!) in June 2022, with OTs being excited and impressed by the impact Drive Focus can have on clients with executive functioning disorders who want to learn or return to driving. Affordable, accessible, brain-training for driving!

I recommend Drive Focus to patients who have had strokes, brain injuries, cognitive or visual processing limitations and students with special needs exploring if they are ready to drive. Drive Focus is motivating because it looks like driving. After using Drive Focus my clients are much more relaxed and prepared for driving.

Drive Focus is the best first step available to assist people who need help learning to drive and lack access to professional assistance.
Testimonial Bryson
My daughter, who is on the autism spectrum, used Drive Focus to help prepare for behind the wheel driving lessons. Her ability to recognize and prioritize signals, traffic, and potential hazards increased dramatically. She enjoyed the app and gained a lot of self-confidence.
Testimonial Kim
I love using Drive Focus with my clients recovering from strokes to work on scanning and processing activities in preparation for driving. I also use Drive Focus with inexperienced drivers to get ready to learn to drive. The app is easy to use, very affordable, and the visuals are great!
Susie Touchinsky
Adaptive Mobility Services, LLC
I highly recommend Drive Focus to help prepare a student to get behind the wheel of a car. I went from not knowing where to look while driving to being able to recognize the most important things for a driver to notice. It doesn't get boring because of the different cities that you drive through as you improve.
