The following information was obtained from the website of the Connecticut Department of Aging and Disability Services (ADS),

Driver Training Program (DTP) For Persons With Disabilities Adaptive driver training is instruction for people with disabilities to learn to drive using vehicles which have been modified to accommodate a disability. In Connecticut, the State Department of Aging and Disability Services (ADS), in cooperation with the State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) provides evaluation, instruction and licensing of people with disabilities who need special equipment to drive a car.

How To Apply To The DRS Program

Completion of the driver training program alone does not entitle you to operate a vehicle. Securing your operator’s license is the final step in this process towards enabling you to drive. Once your limited (restricted) license has been issued to you, you must drive only under the conditions identified on your restricted license. You should not operate a vehicle that does not comply with the limitations (restrictions) on your license.
