1) What do I need to bring with me when I attend my assessment?

It is important to bring your driving licence (card and paper part) if you have it.  If you do not have a driving licence, you should bring some proof of identification. You should also bring a packed lunch, medication and reading glasses if applicable.

2) How long will my assessment take?

You should allow four hours for your assessment to be completed.

3) My son/daughter wants to learn to drive.  They have a disability.  What should I do?

The first step will be to have an assessment with us to determine the individual’s needs for driving, which adaptations are required and the type of vehicle best suited to the person. A Driving Ability assessment will also give some indication of ability to drive, if this is appropriate.

4) Do I need a licence before I come for an assessment?

We have an off-road private track for driving, therefore a licence is not needed to take the assessment.  However we will not be able to take you out onto the public roads which may mean that you will be required to come back when you do have licence cover to take an on-road drive; if this is appropriate to your assessment

5) Can I buy any food if I need it?

We have a small selection of snacks and confectionery as well as hot and cold drinks. We have a microwave available to heat food that you bring. A mobile van visits every morning at 10 am with has a selection of hot and cold snacks. We are also within a short drive of local amenities.
