Vehicle modifications

Search this resource

A person must consider whether they will be a driver and/or passenger prior to organising vehicle modifications. It is best to seek the support of a driver-trained occupational therapist to script vehicle modifications if travelling as a passenger in a wheelchair. Modifications must be undertaken by an appropriately-qualified person who can provide the certification required by Transport for NSW on completion.
