Vehicle Adaptations


The vehicle adaptations section lists the more commonly used solutions which range from basic devices that can be fitted to a standard production vehicle, to more technologically advanced and sophisticated controls for drivers with complex needs.  Most driver adaptations are fitted to a vehicle with automatic transmission but there are some that can be fitted to vehicles with manual transmission. 

Where an adaptation is identified as being relevant to a specific medical condition it is strongly recommended that you consult appropriate specialists to ensure modifications are legal and practical, they are suitable for the licence holder and the intended vehicle, and also to be informed about alternatives.  This may include: 

  • driver assessment specialists 
  • rehabilitation teams 
  • clinicians 
  • vehicle adaptation specialists 

Important: Users should always check the legislation in any countries they intend to drive in, as not all adaptations may be allowed.
