Who we are
The Hubs Mobility Advice Service (HMAS) is operated by Driving Mobility.
Driving Mobility, a national charity supported by the Department for Transport, accredits a network of 20+ charity and NHS funded centres that provide ‘fitness to drive’ and mobility equipment assessments. Led by Occupational Therapists and Approved Driving Instructors, these centres strive to facilitate driving independence for clients mostly signposted from the DVLA, Motability, Police and the NHS.
Driving Mobility services are used by clients of all ages, who have restricted mobility due to an ongoing or recently diagnosed medical condition. With the help of the centre teams, and where appropriate, individuals can be signposted towards suitable vehicle adaptations and/or specialist tuition to ensure continued safety and peace of mind behind the wheel.
If driving or being a passenger in a car becomes, or has never been an option, then this is where the Hubs service will help you. 15 of the Driving Mobility centres provide Hubs staff who are specifically trained to offer the latest guidance and advice regarding accessible travel alternatives.
From advice on using mobility scooters on trains to wheelchair friendly buses, the Hubs teams will give you all the information you need to maintain or retain personal independence without the use of a car.
