The mobility provided by a car can obviously give much greater independence and opportunities for work and social activities to people with physical handicaps, even though they may still find it difficult to drive an ordinary production car. But, in our country, the driver's license test is to the disadvantage for driving of the handicapped people who can drive a car with suitable modifications. The authors examined the relationship between the motor ability test of driver's license test for the handicapped people and actual car-driving abilities in three handicapped people who have driven suitably modified cars for several years. All three subjects failed in steering wheel operation of motor ability test and one subject failed in parking brake operation. These results showed that the motor ability test of driver's license test for the handicapped people was inappropriate and had to be changed. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2005; 29: 235-238)
