Important pointers for NDIS participants

To ensure you have a smooth and positive experience with your driving lessons as an NDIS participant at Eclipse Driving School, consider the following tips:

 

  • Always get a medical clearance from your doctor to drive as there are specific conditions that require a medical certificate from your doctor. This document will state if you are eligible for NDIS driving lessons. However, you don’t need to worry as, during our initial discussion, we will let you know about the requirements for you to have NDIS driving lessons in Perth.

 

  • Don’t rush out to purchase a car without knowing first what the recommended vehicle modifications are for you to have a functional and safe vehicle. At Eclipse Driving School, we use modified cars with electronic adaptations and specific features that’ll make manoeuvring easier and safer for you. During the initial assessment, we’ll be able to identify the type of assistance that best suits your needs so you don’t end up with a vehicle that’s not right for you.

 

  • Make sure you have listed learning to drive and getting a driver’s licence as one of your main goals in your NDIS plan. This can reduce possible delays in starting with your driving lessons. You should also mention the appropriate funding requests for access to NDIS-certified driving instructors. Omitting these things in your NDIS plan can lead to delays and frustration. Your NDIS plan manager should be able to assist with this and inform you of the types of funding available to you.
