This dissertation discusses different strategies and methods for assessing driving performance in clinical populations, both for groups of patients and individual patients. The central assessment method in this dissertation is the Dutch standardized on-the-road driving test, which is a rather unique driving test conducted by Maastricht University in actual traffic. In addition to theoretical considerations regarding this test, two experimental studies applying the standardized on-the-road driving test for the assessment of driving performance of narcolepsy and sleep apnoea patients after treatment with a novel stimulant medication (or placebo) are presented.
