Driving Mobility coordinates a network of accredited driving assessment centres that cover the whole of the UK. These centres include independent charities and NHS centres that offer information and assessments to help people with a disability get back on the road to independence.
Having access a vehicle as either a driver or as a passenger is important to so many people – especially if they have restricted mobility or a disability.
Driving safely and happily is often a challenge for people with a disability, and searching for a vehicle that suits your lifestyle and the adaptations you need to help you drive or access a vehicle comfortably can sometimes be difficult.
Driving Mobility was set up to help people overcome these problems. They oversee and coordinate the work of the independent driving and mobility assessment centres here in the UK. Many of these centres have outreach facilities, and they are all supported by the Department for Transport.
Driving Mobility centres provide professional information and assessment so people with a disability can gain or retain the ability to drive and enhance their personal independence. Clients can self-refer or are recommended to make contact by organisations like the Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA), Motability, the Police and healthcare professionals.
Driving assessments for drivers of cars and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) including 'drive-from' wheelchair adapted vehicles.
Assessments for drivers and passengers who have difficulty getting into or out of a vehicle.
If you’d like to learn to drive or return to driving following an accident or disability, a Driving Assessor at your local centre will be able to assess your needs and recommend a driving solution for you.
Assessments to help people who want to load their wheelchair or scooter into a car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV).
There are around 20 Driving Mobility centres spread across the UK, and each one has healthcare professionals and approved driving instructors who can offer advice and recommendations to help people with restricted mobility or a disability stay safe on the road.
Each centre is attached to smaller 'satellite' driving centres which, depending on where you live, may be more convenient for you to get to. Please be aware that satellite centres may have limited assessment facilities and different opening times to the main centre.
