 Frequently Asked Questions

Does NDIS cover vehicles? 

Unfortunately, No! NDIS does not cover the cost of your vehicle, they only cover disability vehicle modifications or wheelchair car conversions. Therefore you need an appropriately functioning vehicle before NDIS can approve car modifications.
