Working together with medical professionals and vehicle modification experts, we can help you learn to drive for the first time or learn to drive again.
We offer driving lessons using Hand controls, Spinner Knob, Left Side Accelerator and other driver assist equipment. Let us help you work out what you need. Then we will get on with the driving lessons.
Some say learning difficulties. We say learning differences. For example, we know that Aspergers and other autism spectrum clients can become really good drivers. You just need to take the right amount of time.
First time driving or learning again
If you have never driven, driving lessons will get you on the road.
If you are learning to drive again, driving lessons can help you learn to drive in a different way.
Getting your licence – The Medical Pathway
If you fill out your Application for Licence form and have to answer Yes to particular Medical Conditions, you will need to get your licence by what we call the Medical Pathway.
Your Doctor or other Medical Professional will need to fill out a Medical Fitness to Drive form. You may also need help from other Specialists or a (Driver trained) Occupational Therapist .
We developed a table which we hope will help you make sense of the Medical pathway.
Medical and OT support
We are happy to provide support for Driving OT Assessments. After the assessment, driving lessons will help gain the skills and confidence needed for safe driving.
Occupational Therapists can help you get on the road. Becoming more mobile involves more than just driving the car. An OT can help you become more independent.

Finding a way……
A spinner knob can offer you great freedom. Easy to fit and simple to shift from one car to another, sometimes a ‘spinner’ is all you need to drive safely and stay in control.
A left side accelerator can be a much simpler solution than fitting hand controls. In a short time you will be driving with confidence. We recommend a few lessons in our driver training car while you are learning. Yes, we have a safety brake on our side.
Indicator cross-overs / extensions are relatively easy to fit.
There are many options to make driving easier. Indicator cross-overs and extensions are simple and easy to fit. Our car is also fitted with electronic indicator and wiper controls that you can try.
Satellite Accelerator Control system is now part of our option list. With only five or ten minutes practice, you will look like you have been driving that way for years.
Is your car is already modified? No trouble, we can have lessons in your car.by
