The purpose of this study was to determine the ability of Mini Mental Status Examination (MMSE) and Motor Free Visual Perception Test (MVPT) to predict driving outcome in subject with brain damage.

Fifteen brain damaged subjects were administered for this study. Fourteen subjects had brain damage due to stroke and only one subject had traumatic brain injury. All subjects were evaluated with MMSE and MVPT. We used total score for each tests. Subjects were also evaluated in driving simulator that measured their operational responses to filmed driving situation. Correlation between neuropsy-chological tests score and driving simulator score were analyzed.

1) By average score, MMSE score was 26.6 and MVPT score was 23.7. Driving simulator score was average 30.1. 2) There was good correlation between MVPT score and driving simulator score (r=0.675, p<0.01). 3) There were no correlation between MMSE and driving simulator score nor between MMSE and MVPT score.

MVPT can be used as screening test for identifying person who are not ready to drive after getting brain damage. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2002; 26: 268-272)
