Driver Assessment
WTC’s certified driving instructors evaluate individuals with disabilities to determine their ability to drive motor vehicles.

Driver Education: Deaf & Autism Spectrum Disorder
WTC offers driver education for individuals who are Deaf or are diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. This includes the MVA’s 30-hour Driver’s Education classroom curriculum course and 6-hours behind-the-wheel training with the WTC driving rehabilitation specialist.  Students must have a valid Learner’s Permit prior to participating in the 6-hours of behind-the-wheel training.  Students may earn their Learner’s Permit prior to, or after, completion of the 30-hour classroom course.

Adapted Driving

WTC staff determine what adaptive equipment individuals with disabilities will need to get a driver’s license and then provide training on how to use the adaptive equipment.

Vehicle Modification Services
WTC’s state-licensed evaluators determine
what adaptive equipment and other modifications a vehicle needs to allow individuals with disabilities to enter, exit and safely operate it. Modifications are for vehicles owned (not leased) by the DORS consumer or his or her family.
