errr....good question!

As far as I now there is an international driving lisence. I guess you only have to set on that one that you are disabled and using a wheeelchair.
See here: http://www.idlservice.com/

Maye you can ask them directly.

Where do you want to study?

Cheers
Philip

Philip, she asked about an ID card, not driving license...
Why do you need that ID, sarah?

Deaf people can do everything except hear.

Hi Sarah,

when you live and study in germany you will get your own german student ID or your own german handicapped ID. It's not posible to have your own car, when your be a student or handicapt with weelchair. In germany with your student ID oder handicapped ID you can use public transports for free.

To study or work as a doctor is posible to. I know a german doctor, she was born with no legs, she study medicin and work as a anaesthesist now. In swizerland is a doctor, he had a bicycle-crash, is paraplegic and study medicin. He work in his job like a helthy doctor. Sometimes he use a standing-weelchair for work.

You see everything is posible. But the way to find out how to do that with a handicap is not easy. But when you think it's posible for you, do it. icon_wink.gif
