It is centered around a proven process -- evaluating your needs, selecting the right vehicle, choosing a qualified dealer to modify your vehicle, being trained, maintaining your vehicle -- that can help you avoid costly mistakes when purchasing and modifying a vehicle with adaptive equipment. Also included is general information on cost savings, licensing requirements, and organizations to contact for help.
