AIM: Review of the literature regarding the impact of brain injury on driving skills. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pubmed and Cochrane publications from 2000 to 2010. RESULTS: Thirty-five articles were selected for this review of literature. Despite an increased risk of accident in this population according to retrospective studies, no methodology is currently validated to assess impact of brain injury, especially cognitive sequelae, on driving capacity, given the low level of evidence of studies. Assessment of attentional, executive and visuo-spatial deficits is given great importance. On-road assessments have to be carried out. CONCLUSION: It appears necessary to combine medical and neuropsychological evaluations with an on-road assessment of driving capacity.
