A first for the Mobility Roadshow: Test Drives on the Open Road!

This year, for the first time in the show’s history, test drives will take place on public roads around the venue…

The Mobility Roadshow was the first event to offer opportunities to test drive production model vehicles with a variety of adaptations, enabling people with disabilities the rare opportunity to ‘try before you buy’.

Over the past 30 years, thousands of people with disabilities, as well as families and carers, have seized the opportunity to try out a range of vehicle adaptations, brought together for three days on one site. You can take a test drive as a disabled driver or passenger, for whom a safe, comfortable ride is equally important.

This year, for the first time in the show’s history, test drives will take place on public roads around the venue, offering visitors a more authentic driving experience. With the opportunity to try a wide range of marques and models, including drive-from-wheelchair options, this is an excellent opportunity to compare vehicle handling in real traffic conditions.

A carefully planned route, with set off from and return to the Telford International Centre, has been designed in consultation with experienced instructors, who as always will accompany each driver.

You can register in advance for test drives and remember to take your licence on the day.

NOTE: Test drives on the road route at the Mobility Roadshow are open to full licence holders only; however, provisional licence holders are welcome to come and talk to manufacturers and adaptation companies about their needs, and are invited to test drive at Get Going Live! – an event specifically for novice drivers with disabilities – on Saturday 13th July, details at www.getgoinglive.co.uk.or visit the Get Going Live! stand in the Information Village at the Roadshow.
