Derby - Driving Mobility

Derby

Main centre

Derby DrivAbility offers a personalised advice and assessment service for older and disabled drivers and passengers.

If a health problem is affecting your driving ability or if a physical restriction is compromising the operation of the standard controls of the car, we can assess your ability and advise on the options for you to continue or return to driving. Both experienced drivers and those wishing to learn to drive for the first time are catered for.

Options for getting in and out of cars, both for drivers and passengers, can be explored and advice for wheelchair loading can be provided.

We also run seating clinics for children and adults with challenging behaviours.

Outreach services are completed in Newark and Stoke-On-Trent, each on a twice monthly basis. Contact the Derby office for more details.
