New Adapted Vehicles Offer Accessible Driver Training

This year, Dulson Training has invested in brand new vehicle adaptations in order to offer driver training and improved access to our vehicles for people with special accessibility needs.

Working in partnership with Shrewsbury vehicle adaptation specialists Shropshire Mobility, we now have a left foot adaptation for some of our CAT C and CAT C + E (Class 1) vehicles.

The left foot adaptation enables drivers to use their left foot to operate the brake and accelerator, replicating standard vehicle operation, but designed to assist people who are unable to drive using their right foot.

Our friends at Shropshire Mobility fitted these adaptations which can be cleverly clipped on and off with a quick release handle, making it quick and easy to adapt the vehicles when drivers need this option for their training.

Steve Dulson, Managing Director of Dulson Training, comments:

“We are so pleased to be working with Shropshire Mobility to make our training and test vehicles available for people with different accessibility needs.

“We recognised that there was a key need for drivers with different accessibility requirements to be able to complete practical training at our Shrewsbury and Telford training and test sites and we were therefore keen to offer vehicles which could be adapted to meet their needs.

“We have already welcomed our first trainee driver to train using this system and we look forward to continuing to work with Shropshire Mobility to identify further improvements we can make to our fleet and training sites, to make sure our driver training is available to as many people as possible.”
