Whichever Vauxhall car you choose on the Motability Scheme, we understand you may need to adapt your vehicle so it’s fit for your specific needs. That way you’ll get the best out of your motoring experience, whether you’re a passenger or you’re in the driving seat.
To help control the speed of your vehicle you can choose to install a manual push/pull device next to your steering wheel.
Alternatively, there are a range of light touch electronic accelerators should you need a device that takes less effort than the push/pull controls.
Combining a steering ball with your hand controls will allow you to steer your vehicle with one hand and operate the controls with the other.
A remote control device will then assist with operating indicators, windscreen wipers, headlights etc. if you find these difficult to reach.
These devices are ideal if you are unable to comfortably use the standard accelerator due to limited mobility in your right leg.
Both options allow you to control speed with your left foot. One allows for the original accelerator to be uncovered if you share driving with your carer.
To simply operate your indicators you can add an indicator switch to your hand controls. An easy release handbrake may also provide assistance.
If you have difficulty reaching your foot pedals while driving you can bring these closer to you with extensions for comfort and control.
Depending on the size or weight of your wheelchair or scooter you’ll need 2 or 4-way hoist.
It’s important for you to speak to one of our accredited adaptation partners to ensure you choose the correct vehicle for a hoist to function.
This hoist is designed to lift you safely into your vehicle. The sling stays underneath you once you’re seated ready for the end of your journey.
The mount is a permanent feature. However, the frame can be removed and stowed in the boot. The hoist is operated at the touch of a button.
