Hearing impaired to get driver's licenses

Six individuals with hearing impairment became the first batch in Shanghai to pass the physical examination prior to driver training on Wednesday, which means they may obtain driver's licenses in three months, according to the Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation.

The physical examination took place at a local hospital. After undergoing tests regarding visual acuity, hearing, color discrimination and limb activity, six individuals were assessed as qualified to proceed to driving training.

A worker with the Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation surnamed Zhu said it was a result of years of work reflecting disabled persons' needs to relevant government departments and communicating with police and traffic authorities.

A document from the Ministry of Public Security allowed people with hearing impairment to apply for licenses to drive small-sized cars if they can meet a certain hearing standard with hearing aids.
