Motability Vehicle Adaptations

There are three different adaptations which can be included with the Motability scheme. All three help disabled people enjoy driving as they allow them to feel comfortable on their journeys. The three vehicle adaptations are access. stowage and driving.

Access Adaptation

The access adaption includes wheelchair accessible vehicles whereas, other options include the permanent type swivel seats which turn or move either inside the car or outside it. It is also lowered to ensure that access can be made a lot easier. The alternative electric hoist is used to lift you into the car and would be suitable for anyone who does not want the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) and allows for the original seat to be used as well.

The stowage adaptations are used to take control over your wheelchair or scooter. The boot or rooftop has a built in hoist or stowage which can lift your wheelchair or scooter by just pressing a button. You can guide it to wherever you want it.

Driving Adaptations

Driving adaptations make driving that bit easier as it enables you to drive where ever you thought was impossible. You will also receive help for speed control, steering and signalling. You nominated driver can still drive the car as it will have all its original controls. Although, the driving controls may require an automatic gearbox.
