The adaptation can be fitted to vehicles with disability driving adaptations fitted to the driver’s side. The dual controls allow the front passenger to intervene and take over control of the primary functions, such as the brake, should the need arise. Permitting swift evasive action is a vital safety back up to reduce the chances of an accident, ensuring peace of mind for the driver and passenger alike and giving the learner driver increased confidence as they learn to drive.
