At General Motors, they understand just how important mobility is if you have a disability.
That's why they created the GM Mobility Program. It's designed to help people with disabilities access the resources they need, and get a reimbursement of up to $1,000 towards the cost of adapting an eligible GM vehicle*.
To help you find the equipment and vehicle that's right for you, we've included the information you'll need and a number of links in the following pages, as well as a helpful overview you can download and keep.
Getting the vehicle you love adapted with the right equipment can be a simple process. To start, we recommend you:
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.

- Physician's Assessment Form (PDF)
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.
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.
