Wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs)

1 Sep 2011

A wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) can make a great difference for disabled drivers and passengers. Travelling in your wheelchair means you don't need to transfer in and out or stow it in the boot, so you can travel more freely.

There are lots of things to think about when you are choosing a WAV. This guide will help you decide what you need.

We look at what WAVs are, the standards and regulations that apply to them, and the various types that are available. We give advice about choosing and financing a suitable WAV, point you towards organisations that can give you more personalised advice, and show you how to go about getting one.
