If you find yourself unable to operate the standard pedals on a vehicle, we can offer push/pull hand controls. These are the most popular driving adaptation: a mechanical device that operates the brake and accelerator on an automatic car. We have these installed on our demonstration vehicle for you to view. If you would like to try them on the road, then we recommend using our local driving instructor.
There are many electronic accelerators to choose from: over-ring, under-ring or trigger. We recommend trying each one to see which one you like the feel of, then driving a vehicle with them on at an assessment centre.
We fit a wide range of LFAs. Depending on the vehicle, we fit twin flip, electronic or floor mounted. The LFA enables you to use your left foot for the operation of the brake and accelerator. For this adaptation, unless you already have an LFA, we strongly recommend an assessment. We don’t however, recommend an LFA, if you have previously driven a manual car..
There are various modifications available for vehicle pedals, from flip up pedals for use with hand controls - providing more leg room, to pedal extensions that bring the pedals closer to the driver's feet.
There are many steering aids available, your choice will depend very much on your individual requirements. Please call us on 01743 790879 for more details.

It is important to get the right combination, so we always recommend a demonstration.
