    Do you mean the one who can not use a motor or a vehicle? A blind can not use them too, women can't drive cars in Saudi?
    I can't understand it, anyway does it mean quadriplegia?
    Thanks

    motor is "a device that changes electricity or fuel into movement and makes a machine work" as a noun.
    adjectively before noun, it means a car. mainly UK connected with cars or other vehicles which have engines and use roads.

    Good afternoon, Over the Top.

    (1) You did not give the context, so it is difficult to know exactly what it means.

    (2) I went to Google and found many references to motor-disabled, which is a disability.

    (3) I then checked my good dictionary that explained that "motor" refers to muscular movement or the nerves activating muscular movement.

    Have a nice day!

    Dear TheParser,

    I have it, " Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary - 8th Edition" but I didn't install on my computer, because I thought that it's not useful. but though you use it, I will install it.
    I use Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary - 3rd Edition. It is very useful.

    Good Night
