General Motors knows how important mobility is when you have a disability. That is why they developed the GM Mobility vehicle program to help people with disabilities access the resources they need.
If you are disabled, you may qualify for a reimbursement of up to $1,000 towards the cost of adapting an eligible new GM vehicle.*
Visit Toronto’s City Buick Chevrolet Cadillac GMC the next time you are shopping for a vehicle and wondering about which models may be best suited for easy access for people with handicaps or disabilities. Getting a vehicle that you love adapted with the right equipment for your needs can be a simple process.
To start, we recommend you:
1) Obtain an evaluation or visit your medical practitioner
First find a driver assessment facility and arrange for a complete evaluation. There are a number of facilities across the country, but if you’re not sure where to find one, you can always get in touch with the Ministry of Transportation or contact us at the GM Mobility Program. Your assessment should include suggestions about your driving and a list of vehicle modification recommendations.
If you already know what kind of adaptive equipment you need, you won’t need an evaluation. Your equipment installer will only need a physician’s authorization form.
2) Contact the Provincial Ministry of Transportation
In most provinces, people are required to report any changes in their medical status to the Provincial Ministry of Transportation. When you report a change in your medical status, the Ministry may conduct a medical review, and may need to alter your driving privileges for your safety. Also keep in mind that failure to report a change in your medical status may put your driver’s licence status in jeopardy all together.
