Bohdan Protasevych, a student of the of the Driving School for People with Disabilities of the Odessa State University of Internal Affairs, successfully passed a practical exam at the territorial service centre of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and received a category B driving licence.

Bohdan has been in a wheelchair for 20 years and, thanks to the Ministry of Internal Affairs' flagship project, he was able to master the skills of driving a specialised manual car and get his long-awaited driving licence.
