Driving Mobility that accredits a network of driving assessment centres, has relaunched its website to provide comprehensive guidance on all aspects of adapted driving, accessible travel and personal mobility.
Supported by the Department for Transport, Driving Mobility is the umbrella organisation that coordinates 20 independent driving assessment centres across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
With over 70 outreach facilities, centres are individually managed by separate charities and NHS departments – all providing clinical ‘fitness-to-drive’ assessments commonly for people who have experienced a life changing diagnosis. Clients can also benefit from a range of other services and either self-refer or are signposted from the DVLA, Motabilty, Police and NHS.
In addition to clinical recommendations regarding driving with a disability, professional advice is available on wheelchair accessible vehicles, mobility equipment, using public transport and accessible lifestyles.
Healthcare professionals are also supported with CPD training and events. Driving Mobility is regarded as ‘the national voice of assisted driving and independence’ and its improved website now reflects this position of authority.
Driving Mobility boasts the UK’s largest knowledge base in terms of accessible driving. Its team of Occupational Therapists, Approved Driving Instructors, management staff and trustees, bring together vast experience in assisted driving and accessible travel. This wealth of expertise ensures the new Driving Mobility website is a vital gateway to accessibility for all.
