In exceptional circumstances private vehicle may be used but only with an escort and where risk can be managed

In exceptional circumstances only the person can be conveyed by private vehicle. This is not recommended by the Code and should only be considered as a last resort and only if the person is not resisting, the ASW is satisfied that any risks can be managed, when no alternative is available. When this mode of transport is used an escort must always be present and the application and medical recommendation forms must be in the possession of the driver or escort.
