UPDATE TO NDIS VEHICLE MODIFICATIONS
Transcript – Updates to Vehicle
modifications and driving supports
The NDIA has released new guidelines for vehicle modifications and driving supports.
These guidelines explain:
- What vehicle modifications and driving supports are
- which supports the NDIS will fund
- how we consider the age and condition of a vehicle you’d like to modify, and;
- what information and evidence we need to fund modifications already made to a second hand car you’re buying.
You should always get advice before buying assistive technology, like vehicle modifications.
Our Guidelines explain what types of evidence or assessment you need, depending on the cost of the modification.
This template will help your vehicle modification assessor work with you to provide evidence for support requests over $15,000.
This assessor has to be a Driver Trained Occupational Therapist if you want modifications to allow you to drive the vehicle.
