The driving school for disabled people

Daniel Cluff is an occupational therapist and came across people who were having trouble relearning to drive and realised there was a need for driving instructors for disabled people.

So he set up his own driving school and adapted his car for their individual needs.

    What a fantastic idea!  I found that I had to work everything out myself, going around roundabouts one-handed, due to holding the accelerator and wheel at the same time, that took a lot of patience and near heart attacks from both myself and my other half (he's not a very good passenger at the best of times), I think I should book myself onto a few off-road courses and drag him along with me, the screams would be worth it. Seriously though, I would still like refresher lessons as not quite mastered parallel parking, but mainly for the confidence side of things, anyone know of any in and around Ayrshire please say.

    Hi @CB12, that sounds like quite a feat! If you do decide to pursue refresher lessons, these local instructors may be able to help.
