Driving and Transport

Driving is not always a safe activity for people after a stroke. Physical difficulties and visual processing difficulties as a result of a stroke can prevent somebody from ever returning to driving. You need to inform your insurance company of your medical history.

The Irish Wheelchair Association provides a driving assessment and tuition service for drivers with disabilities. Please contact the National Mobility Centre on 045 893 094/5 or email

There are grants available for transport.

A Disabled Persons Parking Card for the car can be obtained from the Irish Wheelchair Association. Send a note with your name, address, and nature of your disability with a self-addressed envelope to:

  • The Irish Wheelchair Association
  • Driving Section
  • Clane, Co. Kildare.

Contact 045 893094/5 for further details

Your GP will be required to complete a small section of the application form.
