In Australian Brisbane, for the first time in the world, a driver’s license was issued to a visually impaired person. Chess Moller-Nilsson has been blind since birth, but that doesn’t stop him from driving a motorcycle. This is reported by the ABC News channel.

The Australian has long been fond of motocross motorcycles, but legally he could not drive a bike. However, the Queensland state authorities made concessions to the blind motorcyclist and issued him a driver’s license.

However, Chess Moller-Nilsson’s rights are special and have a number of restrictions. In particular, he cannot ride a motorcycle on public roads, but only off-road on specially equipped sites.

In addition, a navigator must accompany the biker during the trip. For Chas, his friend Jack Elkins plays this role on another motorcycle – he gives directions and obstacles. Communication takes place through a special communication system with a microphone and headphones in the helmet.

Two Australians ride in the Queensland Motorcycle Park. The local biker community has already donated a motocross bike and gear to Chess.
