CarFit is a program design to “fit” a vehicle to drivers for maximum comfort and safety.

A trained professional completes a 12-point CarFit checklist to assess foot positioning on the gas and brake pedals, adjust window mirrors, seat position, steering wheel, head rest, etc. The check only takes about 15 minutes to perform.

For more information, visit the CarFit website. If you are in the Richmond area and would like to be fitted to your car, please call 800-552-3402 for a personal appointment.

Virginia GrandDriver has trained over 60 CarFit event coordinators. CarFit has been popular at Aging events around the state. Contact The Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services for details on holding your own CarFit event.
