RHI Driving Program May 23rd, 2012

RHI’s driving program has made a huge impact on my life.  The program has allowed me to get my driver’s license and regain my independence.  When I first started driving again, I felt like a sixteen year old kid again.  Except this time it was my wife worrying about me instead of my mom!  I have been able to return to my job as a salesman.  My job requires me to travel the state of Indiana and visit customers.

RHI’s driving program was instrumental to my progress.  I really enjoyed driving the van. It had several different hand controls I could try, different steering options, and seat positions.  The van performed flawlessly.

Tinette, my RHI driving instructor, was a pleasure to work with.   She was very patient and reassuring as I learned how to operate a vehicle with hand controls.  Not only did she teach me drive, but also how to get in and out of the van and fill it up with gas.  These simple task that i had taken for granted before, were major obstacles to over come.  I gained confidence each time we went out and ventured further from the safe confines of RHI’s parking lot.

I consider myself truly blessed to have been able to work with team from RHI.
