Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF), the Surrey based charity that runs a mobility centre in Carshalton is now offering driver assessments in Worthing.
Operating from the Charmandean Centre in Forest Road, Worthing, the new QEF Mobility Service satellite centre is offering free assessments for local residents that are referred by a health care professional until the end of September 2018.
The service’s instructors can assess a your safety to drive and recommend ways to improve safety, such as car adaptations and extra tuition. An occupational therapist and an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) perform the assessments which start with a friendly chat about circumstances, and then a physical and cognitive assessment followed by an on-road drive.
QEF Mobility Services is one of the UK’s largest providers of mobility advice and support for people with disabilities and age-related impairments. This assessment is for drivers with a neurological condition, physical disability or psychological difficulty, provisional licence holders and those aged over 70 and requires a referral from a healthcare professional.
