Driving Lessons with Physical Disability
A physical disability shouldn’t stop you from learning how to drive. People with disabilities are learning and passing their driving tests every day with the help of our skilled instructors who have the knowledge and understanding to help you get behind the wheel and onto the road.
While some adjustments can be made to operate the standard controls of a manual car with an automatic is, however, a better alternative leaving you with fewer restrictions and things to worry about.
A variety of adaptations can be made to help make you feel more comfortable and confident while you are still learning. These range from modifications of foot pedals, handbrake as well as steering and secondary controls, which includes indicators, wipers and washers, horn and headlamps. Car seat and seat belt systems can also be modified, as well as providing transfer options for wheelchair users and those who need help getting in and out of the car.
If legs cannot be used for acceleration or braking, then hand controls are a great available alternative alongside other various steering wheel modification options. For those with more severe disabilities, complex adaptations could still be available to help you experience the freedom and independence of driving. Get in touch with us at dial-a-lesson for driving lessons for physical disabilities in Surrey, to discuss your needs further and help us to make the correct modifications so that you have the best driving lesson experience possible. Lessons can also be arranged in your own bespoked/specially adapted car.
We understand what it takes to help those with disabilities become independent and confident when driving. This is why we offer car and insurance sourcing to help you find the perfect car that meets all of your needs. Not only will this save you both time and money, but it will also give you the peace of mind that you need so that you can enjoy and focus on driving instead.
