​Driver Services

Driver Assessment

Certified driving instructors and occupational therapists evaluate job seekers with disabilities to determine their ability to drive motor vehicles. These services are offered at WTC.

Driver Education

WTC offers two driver’s education tracks.

  • Track 1 is designed for DORS consumers with Autism.
  • Track 2 is designed for all other DORS consumers. (Consumers who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing will be provided with interpreting services).

The WTC Driver’s Education class uses the same 30-hour MVA-approved Driver’s Education Curriculum that the commercial driving schools use. This includes the six-hour Behind-the-Wheel (BTW) training, which occurs after successful completion of the 30-hour class. Students can attend the 30-hour class with or without a Learner's Permit; however, a Learner’s Permit is needed in order to complete the six-hour BTW training.

WTC provides two to three additional class sessions compared to commercial driving schools. These additional sessions allow the instructor and students more time to present and understand the material and also to repeat quizzes and tests as necessary.

The WTC Driver’s Education class is offered both in person at WTC and virtually.

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 vehicle​s owned (not leased) by the DORS consumer or their family.

Contact your DORS Counselor or your local DORS office for more information.
