Supported by the Department for Transport, Driving Mobility accredits a network of over 20 independent driving assessment centres. Comprising of NHS departments and charities, these centres provide ‘fitness to drive’ assessments and other mobility services for clients with restricted mobility who self-refer or are signposted from the DVLA, Motability, Police and NHS.
With its headquarters in Hampton in Arden, RDAC operates several Driving Mobility centres with outreach facilities in central and Northern England so is ideally placed to support visitors to the NEC.
