A very simple solution that will enable a person to drive when they find it difficult or they are unable to use their feet to control the pedals.

This popular vehicle adaptation allows you to control the speed of the car with your hands by pushing or pulling a lever to accelerate or brake.

With hand controls fitted, a steering ball is often essential, as this will enable you to steer the car with one hand, while operating hand controls with the other.

There are a number of manufacturers of Hand Controls, but the main function and operation are the same across each model.

Hand Controls come in their basic form or can also come with electronic integrated switch which will also control the indicator system on your car.

(All integral indicator switched hand controls are all £nil advance payment on the Motability Scheme)

There are also more complex systems that will still allow you to operate the throttle and brake but also through an attached electronic key pad allow you to use most of the basic electrical functions, wipers, lights, horn, etc on your car.

Hand controls commonly known as push pull can be fitted by our mobile service for Bristol the South West and South Wales or installed at our workshop in Bristol.
