Lars Taylor, B.SC.OT

Lars is Meridian Rehab’s functional driving evaluation master.  He recently left his own private practice to head our driving rehabilitation program at Meridian Rehabilitation.  He finds fulfillment in seeing clients he has guided in the use of adaptive driving equipment and on-road rehabilitation successfully regain control of this very important “freedom” in their lives. Lars, himself, has been driving professionally with hand controls for 25 years and was the first adaptive driver in BC to qualify for a driving instructor’s license in 2006.  He is enjoying working with the Meridian team after years of working solo. Outside of the office, Lars enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife, Arlana and their dog.
