Parkinson Awareness Month

Parkinson and Driving
Published: 19 April 2024

As part of Parkinson's disease Awareness Month, we’re highlighting information resources on Parkinson's disease.

One of the most consulted topics by patients who visit The Neuro-Patient Resource Centre is about driving. It’s a topic that brings up a lot of questions and uncertainties.

The resource we use regularly is the @Parkinson Quebec web page, a reliable source that addresses common concerns such as:

  • “Do I have to inform the SAAQ of my Parkinson’s diagnosis?”
  • “Do I have to inform my car insurance of my diagnosis?”
  • “How does Parkinson’s disease affect your ability to drive?”

You can explore these answers and more by visiting the webpage here:

For a wealth of resources on Parkinson's disease, including books, guides, and more, visit our website:

And if you prefer a more personal touch, don't hesitate to drop by and visit us at The Neuro, located in room 354.
