When DRCE did an excellent job on my first car modification, I knew they would be up for the challenge of a Tesla X modification. DRCE went above and beyond to make the modifications just right so I could confidently drive 100% independently. It was truly a team effort, and it was wonderful to be able to work collaboratively with the DRCE team. As a quadriplegic, I had been skeptical that I would be able to enjoy driving again and do so fully independently, but I was wrong! DRCE made it happen and I am forever grateful.
When my doctor recommended hand controls due to my progressing condition, I was at the mercy of the medical referral chain. DRCE provided me a quote for vehicle modifications, but what I got was an entire team of knowledgeable, compassionate, and dedicated people to make sure I had the education, equipment, and approval to drive independently. They have gone above and beyond to make sure I have the best equipment for me and that it’s functioning properly. I cannot say enough good things about the products, services, or people at DRCE. They are doing so much more than driver rehabilitation; they are empowering people with independence and freedom.
Just found these guys! They are the best! I got the car I wanted. They made it possible for me to drive it. OMG this car is fun to drive! And the staff here made the whole experience a pleasure.

Thank you DRCE!!
Being a little person, I hear the words “you can’t” very often. Driving was something I knew I wanted to do, but I had no idea where to start. My dad was handling most of the work since I was still only 15 and had no idea what I was doing. He called several places that never answered or said, “no we don’t do that here”, and then he found DRCE. Tammy jumped on my case immediately. Of course, the adaptive equipment we had in mind was pedal extensions, low and behold those aren’t always the right choice for people with dwarfism. Tammy introduced me to hand controls and had me driving in no time. Since then, I have gotten a new vehicle and new equipment. I absolutely love driving, and I am so glad I found the right place to help me do it, and even get to be a part of the business.

After adopting our teenage niece who is severely special needs, we knew transportation was going to be tough! We are so grateful for the team at DRCE who made us feel like family right from the start and walked us through each step of the process. They have even continued to keep their eye open for a new vehicle that may work for us in the future as our van is quite old! We originally chose DRCE because of the personal service they provided, and they did not disappoint. And although we aren’t military, we were SO happy and excited to work with and support a company that serves our veterans.
Becoming paralyzed changed my world in many ways but mostly a lot of great things have happened since then. One of the biggest changes/ impacts was that I wasn’t as independent, and I had to rely on others. Don’t get me wrong I have an amazing family and friends that were always willing to help but I wanted to do things on my own. After a few years of bed rest and being in and out of the hospital. I was finally able to do PT and able to join an adaptive gym. One of my goals was to become more comfortable with my transfers, from floor to chair (not my favorite) and from any another sitting position back into my chair. My trainer knew that I wanted to be more independent and asked if I ever thought about driving. Once that idea was planted, I started my research to find a driving school. A college friend let me know that Josh had just started an adaptive driving program. Once I got in touch with Josh and I met Tammy my dream of driving came true; not only did I learn to drive with adaptations, but I was able to purchase a vehicle as well. Driving has given me back my life, I am able to go into work, go to doctors, hang out with friends and much more. I recommend DRCE to anyone I meet, that wants to drive. DRCE is the BEST and will forever be part of my family.
