Driving and Vehicle Modifications

Driving gives you a sense of freedom and enhances your life by allowing you to take part in activities without depending on others for transportation. Driver training and vehicle adaptive equipment may make it possible for you to drive.

There are a number of resources that can help prepare you — and your vehicle — for the road.

Driver Testing and Training

Driving schools and assistive driving services provide custom training and services to help you obtain your license to operate a modified vehicle.

Driver Training

The Association for Driver Rehabilitation Specialists has a national directory of certified driver evaluators and trainers to help you learn to use the adaptive technology in your vehicle. 

 

Van and Vehicle Modifications

Purchasing a vehicle and modifying it for a driver with disabilities can be expensive, generally ranging from $20,000 to $80,000. Individual grants and personal loans are some of the funding resources available to help you buy a modified vehicle.
