Formatted abstract
Driving cessation can lead to negative consequences, such as depression and reduced social activities.

The University of Queensland Driver Retirement Initiative (UQDRIVE) intensive support program is a six-week program to assist older people with driving cessation.

Fifty-five participants completed a survey of satisfaction with the program, including identification of the aspects of the program that were useful and they had applied in real life.


There was overall satisfaction with the program, and content analysis identified three areas that were highlighted as particularly useful: "Finding alternative means: transport and service options," "Planning with more wisdom: thinking about driving cessation," and "Being with people: sharing experiences with peers." Implications. These findings indicate that program participants were satisfied with the current UQDRIVE intensive support group program and found both the psychosocial supports and practical strategies to be useful in managing driving cessation.
