Primary objective: To investigate the relationship between performance on the Useful Field of View Test (UFOV) and driving performance following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Participants: Sixty people with TBI referred for driving evaluation. Measures: Useful Field of View Test, Global Rating Scale and Driver Assessment Scale. Results: Subject performance diminished as the complexity of the UFOV sub-tests increased. There was a significant relationship between UFOV performance, particularly on the second sub-test, and on-road driving performance. Subject age and Trail Making Test, Part B were also predictive of driving performance. Conclusions: The UFOV can be used as a screening measure to determine readiness to participate in an on-road driving assessment. © 2006 Taylor & Francis.
