Wheelchair Assessments

Overview

An observed assessment based upon the safe loading, securing and unloading of a wheelchair to and from a wheelchair accessible vehicle.

Candidates can also combine their wheelchair assessment together with a taxi driver assessment as a block booking at a discounted rate.

Assessment Structure

Candidates will be expected to demonstrate a variety of skills such as correctly positioning the vehicle for disabled access, assembly of the wheelchair ramp/lift, securing the wheelchair passenger in place using clamping equipment, as well as safely unloading the wheelchair.
