Disabilities and Driving Information (NZ)

Information on Modifications

Disabilities and driving

Most people with physical disabilities can get a driver licence, and most people who had a licence before they acquired a disability can continue to drive.

Advances in vehicle technology, such as power steering and automatic cars, have helped make driving possible for people with physical disabilities. In addition, almost any standard production vehicle can be modified.

Combined brake and ergonomic trigger accelerator

The new FSK2005 Combined Brake & Ergonomic Accelerator offers a more functional activation of the accelerator for the user. The light action of the trigger allows for fatigue free acceleration and the unique design allows the stalk of the trigger to be pulled directly back to the steering wheel for smooth and progressive activation.

Satellite Accelerator

While accelerating/driving with the Satellite Accelerator, both hands remain on the steering wheel, however in easy reach of the brake lever, gear lever, auxiliary commands on the dashboard and steering wheel, and flaps for sequential gearshift.
