Get Going Live! Puts Young Disabled In The Driverís Seat
Get Going Live! Puts Young Disabled In The Driverís Seat

Registration is now open for an exciting one-day event that will help young disabled or newly disabled people to start driving and plan for their first adapted car.

Get Going Live! takes place on Saturday 13 July at the Donington Park Launch Pad, Derbyshire. Launched in 2011, this free event offers disabled people over 14 years a first opportunity to test drive a selection of adapted vehicles, including drive-from-wheelchair WAVs, on a safe private road system, accompanied by experienced professional drivers.

Young people with disabilities can gain a driving licence at 16, a year ahead of those who are not disabled. That is great news, but for parents and carers there is not always a straightforward route to finding out all they need to know and to feel confident they are making the right decisions for the safety of their prospective young driver.

On hand will be expert advice in a friendly no-pressure environment from organisations and companies with a wealth of knowledge - from choosing an instructor with experience of teaching disabled motorists, to finding out about the adaptations and vehicles that are right for an individual's disabilities.

Whether moving away from home to college or university, or starting out in the workplace, being able to drive is often vital to a young disabled person's mobility and independence. Newly disabled people often lack confidence to get back behind the wheel. Get Going Live! is designed to help both.

You must be over 14 to test drive one of the adapted vehicles, although younger prospective learners are welcome to practise transferring and familiarising themselves with controls. They may also travel as a passenger with an instructor.

This is the third year of Get Going Live!, which has been highly praised by both parents and eager drivers alike.

This comment from one parent in 2012 reflects the feedback from many: "My daughter got to drive for the first time and this gave her the confidence to realise she will be able to drive a car."

And from young learner drivers: "Absolutely fantastic: where else can you get to try so many cars." "I've had a brilliant day; the driving was great - loads of choice and information too." "It was awesome: I can't wait to be 16."

Get Going Live! is organised by national charities Disabled Motoring UK and Mobility Choice, the organisation behind the annual Mobility Roadshow.
