Abstract [sv]

The present manual is one of the outcomes of an

EU-project with the title ODIGO. It

was carried out within the Horizon initiative. As part

of the ODIGO/HORIZON project

Körkort Handikapp, Lernia in Kävlinge (formerly

AmuGruppen, Kävlinge) in Sweden

were requested to produce an operation manual for

driving instructors, to be used in

driver education for persons with special needs (PSN).

The present manual is aiming at providing knowledge

about PSN and to support

driving instructors that educate PSN. In the

introduction of the manual, the require-ments

demanded of a driving school facility and some general

aspects of teaching

are considered. In the following driver education

exercises are presented. In those,

references to Appendix 1 are inserted, in which

specific aspects of the driver education

with respect to PSN are discussed. This appendix also

includes an introduction

to the area of education and PSN. In addition, a

section called “Disabilities and

vehicle adaptation” is enclosed, in order to provide

an orientation within the field of

PSN and vehicle adaptation. In the last section a

suggestion for a lay out of logbook

sheets for driver education is enclosed.
