In 2017, according to the Revenue Press Office, over 10,354 new vehicles were remitted under the Tax Relief Scheme for people with disabilities. Individuals who are eligible for the scheme are entitled to change their vehicles every two years.
With this in mind, the Disabled Drivers Association of Ireland (DDAI) is once again staging the Disabled Drivers MotorShow and Conference on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th September 2018 in the RDS, Dublin.

In addition, the Conference will cover key topics including: Finance options available when purchasing a vehicle, update on Operation Enable and other relevant topics.
Richard said, "Our population is aging and there are currently over 500,000 people in Ireland living with some form of disability. The MotorShow and Conference represents a major opportunity for distributors and dealers to connect with this very important audience and sector”
