The Forum of Mobility Centres is a network of 17 independent organisations covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, who offer professional information, advice and assessment to individuals who have a medical condition or are recovering from an accident or injury which may affect their ability to drive, access or egress a motor vehicle.

All centres offer advice and assessment to people who wish to begin, or return to driving following an illness, injury or accident. They also offer advice with regard to getting in and out of a vehicle and with regard to loading and transporting a wheelchair or a scooter in a motor vehicle. Some centres also offer assessment and advice with regard to wheelchair or scooter selection. Generally, advice is confined to cars rather than motorcycles or heavy goods vehicles.

They offer advice and assessment to:

  • Older people.
  • Those with a medical condition that impacts upon their ability to make appropriate decisions with regard to safe driving.
  • Those with a disability who think they may need special modifications to a motor vehicle in order to be able to control it safely.
  • Carers who need to transport individuals with restricted abilities in a motor vehicle.
