New international database launches to help with driver licensing, vehicle adaptation and accessible parking for people with disabilities.

New ‘DISABLED MOTORING: Travel Opportunities for Motorists with a Disability” website launched

A joint project between the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile and the ITF – International Transport Forum has produced the new ‘DISABLED MOTORING: Travel Opportunities for Motorists with a Disability” website

Visit the website here:

It has been developed to help the 1 billion+ people in the world who live with some form of disability. In many countries, people with disabilities make up a significant and growing part of the community.

For the huge number of disabled individuals who need or want to travel by car, finding information about what is available to help in different regions or countries can be difficult and sometimes impossible.

This new comprehensive database, which is free to access, provides up-to-date information on parking restrictions and concessions for disabled motorists around the world. Also, for the first time, data on driver licence and vehicle adaptation restrictions and conditions is available as well as information on designated parking spaces and the availability of adapted hire cars.

Driving Mobility board member Ann Frye, who was involved in gathering the data for the website, said: “I hope that this can be the start of a wider debate on creating greater equality and opportunity for disabled motorists as well as a useful source of data on the current state of play.”
