I don't drive at the moment because of other problems (fatigue & uncontrolled myoclonic jerks) but I have hand controls in my car.
They do take a bit of getting used to, but are not bad to use. Have you done any driving with them? Some regular driving schools will have an instructor who has a car with hand controls. Your OT or whoever organised your conversion - maybe even the company doing the conversion - could probably give you the name of a good instructor.
I am only checking in here every so often at the moment - but if you have any questions I'll try to answer them.
