Whether it’s lightening the car brakes for disability purposes or reasons of comfort, this can be done through car adaptions. Let’s take a closer look at what can be done to help lighten a vehicle’s brakes.

Can You Lighten The Brakes In My Car?

These car adaptations can be performed by Motability specialists, like us here at PB Conversions. We can lighten your brakes so you don’t have to put so much pressure on the brake to enable you to stop the vehicle. These adaptations can help you use your car if you have a lack of mobility or a disability that prevents you from putting full pressure on a car pedal. You can do this so it’s easy to stop when you need to without putting any stress on your body.


How To Lighten Your Brakes?

If you are struggling with operating your vehicle and braking in particular, contact our team at PB Conversions. We offer expert advice and can talk you through how we can offer a full car conversion to suit your needs. Our team provides car adaptations including:

  • Power Steering.
  • Steering aids.
  • Brakes.
  • Other aspects of your car that makes driving more challenging.

We can make steering simple by offering different grips such as the ‘lollipop’ grip. This is attached to the steering wheel to make turning as easy as possible for you. However, the brakes of the car are one of the most important features. Not having secure braking systems in a car is highly dangerous and will likely result in a collision. 

Car brakes should only ever be adjusted by an experienced professional, like us at PB Conversions. Our team ensures the adaptations are matched to your requirements, safe to use, and apply with all UK laws and regulations.

How Can Lightening My Brakes Help Me?

Depending on your condition, pushing the brake pedal in a car can cause stress on your body that may cause pain. Your disability may also mean you’re unable to press the brake pedal sufficiently. Lightening the brakes in a car makes driving possible whatever your requirements are. Through specialist car adaptions, you can give yourself peace of mind over safety and ensure your comfort while driving.
