A teenager with a disability is getting his chance to drive with the help of a new steering system.
Shaan Lail has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. He's learning to drive with Joysteer.
It looks like it came from a video game, because it actually is a joystick.
Joysteer allows people with minimal amount of hand function to control a vehicle - but it has fewer limitations than other adaptive driving methods.
"It allows you to change the amount of force with the hand control and that means you can accommodate a wider array of clients," Access driver instructor Dean Robertston said.
"For me, driving is just the start of everything to come," Lail said.
Joysteer is a made by a European company, but is now making inroads into the US and Canada.
Shawn's mom says driving will make a world of difference in his life. He'll be able to go to college, work, and have an independent social life.
