Almost any car can be modified, but the types of vehicles and modifications appropriate for each driver are based completely on individual need and preference. Be sure to see Infinitec's driving assessment page to find out what's involved in a personal driving assessment before making any modifications.
Assessments are extremely important to ensure personal safety, and it can't be stressed enough how unique each person's needs are; five people with the same disability will require five different modifications, and possibly even five different vehicles. What's more, a proper evaluation will save you a lot of money you might have wasted on the wrong equipment. Protect yourself and others by taking all the right steps.
