Anyone ever rent a car as a "disabled non-driver"?

I’m asking you, GT, (and maybe Oppo Lock? Can someone share plz?). I have a couple of learning disabilities that keep me from driving - specifically, I have ZERO spatial reasoning skills and very poor depth perception (I don’t see in 3D, from what I’ve been told). My husband and I want to rent a car for a weekend. I have a bank account and credit card, he does not (he was run over by a truck some years ago and has thousands in medical debt).

So, I found out about this thing where I can rent a car under my name and credit card, while having him be my companion driver.


I’m just worried the rental companies won’t think I’m disabled enough, and I really don’t want to have to dig through all my years of paperwork trying to find the letter that says I’m essentially an accident waiting to happen.

Thoughts? Experiences?
