The first inclusive driving schools have been launched in Ukraine, reported on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.

The project is currently being implemented in five cities in Ukraine, with plans for further expansion.

Who can attend the training?

Inclusive driving schools invite people with disabilities who wish to obtain a category B driver's license and require training or retraining on vehicles with manual controls.

The "academic year" has already begun, and the first 22 students are participating in theoretical and practical courses at the adapted driving schools. One of them has already received a driver's license.

The cities with new schools currently, there are only five driving schools for people with disabilities in Ukraine. They are located at the facilities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the following cities:

  • Kyiv
  • Dnipro
  • Lviv
  • Kropyvnytskyi
  • Kamianets-Podilskyi

"We want to help our defenders socialize and reach those people who became disabled before the war and have long had the intention to become drivers," said Katerina Pavlichenko, the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, about the project.
