Handicap Driving Aids & Accessories
United Access offers a variety of handicap driving aids, controls, equipment and wheelchair van accessories for sale. To ensure the appropriate driving aids are prescribed, be sure to have an evaluation by a Certified Driving Rehabilitation Specialist to ensure physical and cognitive capability of operating a motor vehicle. There are two typical parts to a driving evaluation; a clinical assessment and an on the road assessment. To be eligible for an on the road assessment a client must be 16 years of age or older, have a valid driver’s license or temporary permit, and be one year seizure free or have a medical physician release.
United Access has cultivated great relationships with Certified Driving Rehabilitation Specialists in all of our markets through the years. It is important that each potential driver be evaluated for the safety of the individual, as well as, the safety of the other drivers on the road.
