This year’s QEF Mobility Event – Get Going Live – was more successful than ever as it added a live driving aspect that meant that anyone could try out a modified vehicle on our private track.
Opened by the Mayor of Sutton, Councillor Steve Cook, the event say over 30 exhibitors demonstrating vehicles with adaptations, and offering advice on mobility for people with disabilities.
There were also talks from the DVSA about the special measures for taking a driving test with a disability, and Graham Race from QEF’s Tryb4uFly talked about the Accessible Aviation project.
We are also lucky enough to have the Mayor of Sutton, Councillor Steve Cook coming to officially open the event.
Sue, who attended our event last year said;
“I have cerebral palsy, no-one thought I would be able to learn to drive. However an assessment at QEF Mobility Services showed that I had the ability; I just needed the right set of adaptations – they recommended those too. I had lessons at their Driving School and now I have the same mobility as my friends which is fantastic.”
