MRC10 - Motor Vehicle Compensation Scheme
In certain circumstances DVA will pay for the reasonable costs of clinically necessary modifications to a motor vehicle that you use, necessary maintenance and repair of those modifications as well as the cost of any additional insurance that relates to the value of the modifications.
In certain circumstances assistance with the cost of buying a new or second hand motor vehicle can be provided if:
- modification of an existing vehicle is not practicable; or
- you do not own a motor vehicle, have not disposed of one in the last 12 months and can derive a real benefit from a motor vehicle.
Medical tests for older drivers to cease
South Australian drivers over 70 years of age will no longer be required to have mandatory drivers licence medical testing each year for their car licence.
Volunteers drivers have an important role in assisting residents of our community with the provision of transport to services and appointments they would not normally be able to access.
