lip between garage and driveway


The driveway has settled about 2-3 inches creating a rise of the same amount when trying to enter the garage. Some low cars hit the lip when we exit the garage, and my wife has trouble getting over the lip with the car without getting a bit of a rolling start (which makes her anxious because she has hit side mirrors on the garage door frame in the past). What's the best way to fill that gap and create a small ramp to help her with entry into the garage?

A concrete pumping company can probably pump that back up to the garage level.

It's an asphalt driveway so I don't think I can put concrete over that, I was thinking of just filling the crack with quick concrete.
