As guest editors for this Special Issue on driving and community mobility we were delighted by the extremely good response to the call and thank the many peer reviewers who worked tirelessly to identify strong research for publication. We had sufficient high quality international studies to fill two issues, of which this is the first. The second will be published later this year, although the papers will appear online as a ‘virtual issue’ before that. Special Issue part one focuses on approaches to assessment related to the occupation of driving and community mobility, while part two presents approaches to intervention. We start this issue with the gold standard approach to identifying research evidence: A systematic review. The review presents methods and assessments used to assess fitness to drive after a mild traumatic head injury (Baker and Unsworth, 2015) and identifies the means and time-scales that can be used when making complex clinical judgements concerning resumption of driving.
