An automatic vehicle to make learning to drive easier
“ALFA Mobilité” is a socially-responsible non-profit driving school that aims to make it easier for people with difficulties learning how to drive to obtain their driving licence
Despite the adapted educational approach developed by the socially-responsible driving school, individuals in the greatest difficulties or with disabilities still find it hard to obtain the standard driving licence.
In 2012, the acquisition of a driving simulator served to optimise training by enabling learners to acquire the basic manoeuvres and become more confident. Yet some individuals remained on the fringe and were unable to acquire their B-category licence. In this respect, training with an automatic clutch gearbox (ACG) would be more appropriate. This is particularly true for people with difficulties in terms of spatialisation and lateralisation. In addition, by acquiring such a vehicle the school would be able to train people with disabilities seeking to learn how to drive – a demand that exists but for which supply remains inexistent in the area. The organisation is working to address that situation by implementing transport on demand with a range of medical/social establishments. The school is targeting some 30 ACG licences a year, 15 of them obtained by people with disabilities.
