On 26th January Minister Ann Rabbitte convened a working group session to examine accessible transport for people with disabilities, including a priority review of the Disabled Drivers & Disabled Passenger’s Scheme.

This included officials from the Department of Finance, the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, the Department of Health and the HSE. The Disabled Drivers Association was represented by Kenneth Fox.  “I got everybody around the table because, as we all know, eligibility for the certificate is far too narrow”, Minister Rabbitte added.  The review is being carried out under the National Disability Inclusion Strategy (NDIS).
