KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — A Kalispell man who does not qualify for a driver’s license because of a brain injury and a history of seizures has been granted the state’s first low-speed restricted driver’s license allowing him to legally drive his golf cart.

The Daily Inter Lake reports 57-year-old Jay Barrow received his license Monday under a new law passed by the 2011 Legislature that took effect on Jan. 1.

Barrow says a disabled person in the Livingston area was behind the change in the law.

To qualify for a low-speed license, a person must obtain a medical statement saying they have an impairment that prevents them from driving a regular vehicle and then pass a vision, written and driving test modified to the limitations of the golf cart or low-speed electric vehicle.
