Why do I need to go through Driver Rehab Hawaii for Driver Training Sessions?

  • If it is recommended that you utilize adaptive equipment in order to assist you with driving, then you will likely need training sessions.  Regular Driver Education Instructors (such as the ones that teach teenagers to drive) do not have the adaptive equipment in their vehicles to train drivers. Additionally, they are not trained and certified in the field of driver rehabilitation. If someone or another program says they can perform  driver training using adaptive equipment, you should ask them to show you their certificate as a certified driver rehabilitation specialist.
