WHAT IS A WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE VEHICLE (WAV)?

13th March 2019
Posted by: Lewis Reed

Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles are simply standard vehicles that have been converted so that someone who uses a wheelchair can either be a driver or a passenger of the vehicle.

Starting with a standard vehicle, a specialist engineering company makes a number of alterations enabling a wheelchair user to access and remain in their wheelchair when the vehicle is moving. The alterations fall in to two categories: one for if the wheelchair user is the passenger, and the other for if the wheelchair user is the driver.

Though all Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles provide safe travel and easy access for the wheelchair user, the design, size and shape of the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle will vary depending on which actual vehicle is used for the conversion and which specialist company is used to convert it, giving the wheelchair accessible vehicle user plenty of choice.
