Driving Aids

   Products that help with speed control, steering and signalling.

 

Hand controls

This device is a good option if you find it difficult to use standard foot pedals to accelerate and brake. You just pull the control towards you to accelerate and then push away to brake. Push / pull devices can only be fitted to cars with an automatic gearbox.

Left foot accelerators

If you have limited mobility in your right leg and cannot use the standard accelerator comfortably, you may benefit from having a left foot accelerator fitted. This will allow you to control the speed with your left foot, while the original accelerator is safely out of the way.

Electronic accelerators

If you find push / pull controls too much effort, an electronic accelerator may help. You accelerate by pressing on a ring in front of, or behind the steering wheel, or by pulling on a trigger device. As with push / pull devices, electronic accelerators can only be fitted on cars with an automatic gearbox and all electronic accelerators come with a hand operated brake.

Pedal Extensions

If you have difficulty reaching the pedals when driving, you could opt to have the pedals extended. Modifying the pedals of your car could bring them closer to your driving seat, allowing you to drive more comfortably while controlling the car with ease.

Steering AIDS

If you have difficulty holding or turning a standard steering wheel, there are a number of simple solutions that may well help you. For example, a steering wheel ball can be fitted to allow you to have more control when steering the car.

Remote control devices

Remote control devices help make it easier to operate some of your standard car controls, such as the indicators, windscreen wipers and headlights, using a single control panel mounted on the steering wheel. They can also incorporate a steering wheel ball so steering and operating basic car functions can be done with one hand.
