The handicap van classification based on entry options are the rear entry and the side entry. In the vans with an option for side entry, the door is modified in a way so as to allow easy access. It is usually used for the people who need to drive on their own.The rear-entry van is used when the handicapped person is just a passenger. There are also climbing options available in the van. First, there is the ramp option in which a foldable ramp is available which extends when the door opens. Second option is platform lift option where the platform can rise and lower from inside the vehicle. It is always preferable to buy a wheelchair in combination with a handicap vehicle.
