About Ability on Wheels

Ability on Wheels is an effort to encourage the differently- abled to take a big leap towards leading a normal life by increasing mobility and accessibility services and solutions. As a first step in this direction, it has launched a first- of- its- kind driving school in India, exclusively for the differently- abled using customized cars in Ahmedabad.

Today, the physically challenged have to first buy a car, get it modified and only then are they provided a learner’s license. This deprives them of the right to first learn and then buy a car. Also, since there is no such driving school they have to learn on their own. Due to this big stumbling block, many physically challenged individuals hesitate to buy a car and hence are deprived of their freedom and independence.

The biggest benefit of this driving school is that now people can get a learner’s license based on the customized vehicles of the driving school so that they can first learn driving and then go in to buy a car. Today Ability on Wheels runs the only driving school across entire country exclusively for people with disabilities.
