The visual requirements for driving in Britain are outlined and how they might be compromised following stroke or head injury examined. The role of the optometrist in assessing such patients who wish to resume driving is discussed. Topics discussed include legal considerations, the relationship between visual problems and driving ability and the vision‐testing techniques that are most appropriate for use with the brain injured. An illustrative case history is presented.
