Medical Conditions

At Driving Solutions, we believe you should drive for as long as you are safe to do so. A medical condition does not necessarily have to mean the end of driving.

Medical conditions that affect the legs (or right leg) are the most common uses for hand controls. Adaptations such as hand controls, left accelerator, spinner knob,crossover directional extender, key adapter, seat adjustment and additional mirrors are available for installation, and Driving Solutions provides driving lessons to teach  you how to use these hand controls.

Adults with medical conditions such as seizures, stroke, paralysis, brain tumor, amputation, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, limb deformity, vision loss, short stature, emotional issues, mental health issues and numerous other situations are often safe to drive with the right adaptive equipment and proper training with adaptive methods.

Get a handle on hand controls

1. MD Order
Talk to your doctor about your medical condition and the need for hand controls. Fill out this MD Prescription for Driver Evaluations and this Medical History Questionnaire.

2. Free Consultation
Once you have your MD order, contact Driving Solutions at 508 878 9583 for a FREE phone consultation. If you’re calling to have information mailed to you, be sure to provide the spelling of your name and address in the message.

3. Learn and Drive
We will customize a program for you to install the controls and teach you how to use the hand solutions. To learn more before you hit the road, read the article: How to Get a Handle on Hand Controls in Six Steps.

4. RMV Testing
Clients who use adaptations must be tested by the Mass RMV at the completion of the driver re-training program for licensure with mechanical aids. Please note that if you apply for a HP handicapped parking placard in Massachusetts, it may affect your license status.
