Organisations for the Disabled A list of organisations that provide services for the disabled.

 


Disabled Drivers' Motor Club The DDMC was founded in 1922 by a number of ex-World War One veterans. One of the first successes of the Club was in the 1930s when there was a proposal that disabled drivers should be banned from driving. Following a lengthy battle, the Club obtained the right for all disabled drivers to hold a licence, subject to the same driving test as other people.
