The fun way to get your driving licence

PARAVAN Driving Schools 

Driver education programme from PARAVAN, designed especially for people with disabilities

Becoming mobile is a bit strange to start with – something that needs to be learned. Qualified driving instructors from our own Paravan Driving Schools based in Aichelau and Heidelberg will gladly help you on the road towards mobility. “Fun & Drive” is our concept for learning how to drive – with practical lessons backed by theoretical coursework. Your disability shouldn’t stand in the way of you driving a car. Our proven “Fun & Drive” concept allows you to enjoy the freedom that comes with mobility. We offer you a driver education programme that you can complete in one of our many driving school cars or your own modified vehicle. Our expert and caring driving instructors are there to ensure that you’ll be able to successfully complete your course. You can then take your driving test with an examiner on-site.

Barrier-free driving school

The PARAVAN driver education programme for people with restricted mobility

Your disability shouldn’t stand in the way of you driving a car. Our proven “Fun & Drive” concept allows you to enjoy the freedom that comes with mobility. We offer you a driver education programme that you can complete in one of our many driving school cars or your own modified vehicle. Our expert and caring driving instructors are there to ensure that you’ll be able to successfully complete your course. You can then take your driving test with an examiner on-site. Our vehicles are individually adaptable and fitted with the latest technologies. Our equipment ranges from simple spinner knobs to left-hand acceleration devices, manual controls, accelerator rings and the patented Space Drive system, which allows drivers to operate their vehicle with a digital mini steering wheel, a digital four-way joystick or a combined acceleration-braking system.

If you wish, your own vehicle can be equipped with the same systems as your driving school vehicle. Once you’ve chosen your vehicle, it will be precisely customised using real-time strength measurements taken under real driving conditions – i.e. not in a simulator.
