What is the Mobility Roadshow?
The Mobility Roadshow is the UK’s premier consumer-focused event for people with disabilities or restricted mobility. It is organised by registered charity Mobility Choice.
Since 1983, the Mobility Roadshow has continued to give millions of people in the UK the invaluable opportunity to assess what mobility products and services are available to help achieve greater independence. Whether they are drivers or non-drivers, passengers, adults or children, every visitor has been able to compare and contrast the largest range of mobility products and services, all in one location and in a friendly, safe atmosphere.
The national Mobility Roadshow provides a more diverse range of features than any other regional show. It is the only event of its kind where the widest selection of accessible and adapted vehicles can be truly test driven and compared. It offers, quite simply, an unforgettable event, totally focused on consumer mobility needs.

Who exhibits at the Mobility Roadshow?
As the UK's premier specialist consumer mobility event, you can expect to meet companies and organisations that focus on independent mobility. Their staff and representatives are keen to talk to you, in depth, about your own particular circumstances and find solutions that are right for you.
Exhibitors include several major car manufacturers showcasing their latest innovations, plus vehicle adaptation and conversion specialists, mobility aids manufacturers, scooter and wheelchair manufacturers, information and advice services, charities, mobility insurance specialists; sport, leisure and holiday information. A complete interactive shop window for all your mobility needs.
What sort of products will I see?
The latest cars and converted vehicles fitted with adaptations; the widest range of wheelchair-accessible vehicles (WAVS); lightweight, sports, power and manual wheelchairs; hand controls; hoists; car seats; commercial vehicles; battery chargers; trikes and scooters; walkers; rotating car seats; specialist wheels and tyres; suspension systems; ramps; seat clamps; wheelchair restraints; independent living aids and numerous gizmos and gadgets to make life easier for anyone with a mobility issue.
Can I physically test and try products?
Yes. This is the original ‘hands-on’ mobility event for consumers, providing you with the widest range of products to compare and contrast in a ‘no pressure’ setting. Try a range of solutions before you buy – compare all the available options before making a decision during the show or at a later date. This first-hand, physical experience cannot be replicated by simply researching on the Internet!
You mean I actually get to test drive wheelchair accessible and adapted vehicles?
Yes! Major motor manufacturers and conversion specialists will have a wide range of adapted standard production cars and WAVS on show. These will include both drive-from-wheelchair and wheelchair passenger models – all available for free test drives around the NAEC Stoneleigh private road system. This is a unique driving experience that can not be equalled at any other mobility consumer event!
If you are a driver looking to test drive a standard production car with hand controls or a more specialised drive-from-wheelchair vehicle, you’ll have the unique opportunity to try out adapted dual controlled vehicles accompanied by professional support drivers. Make sure you bring your driving licence with you. You can pre-register to test drive in advance nearer the time. Once registered, you’ll receive all the information by email.
What if I’m a young/novice driver with a disability?
The Mobility Roadshow also provides opportunities for young drivers with disabilities and anyone new to disability who wants to research adapted motoring options through its feature event, Get Going Live! Check out the GGL page for full details.
Is it just for people with disabilities?
Not at all - the Mobility Roadshow caters for a wide cross section of people, ranging from young to old. There are all kinds of equipment and services that can help people who may be living with conditions such as arthritis, MS, MD, stroke, limb loss, or simply having reduced mobility through age. Lots of products and information can help older drivers to continue to drive safely and for longer. From swivel seats that make getting in and out of a car much easier, to lightweight portable scooters that fit easily in the boot of a car, the range of products on show will really help meet the varied challenges of restricted independence.
Is it just for Motability customers?
No. The Mobility Roadshow is for anyone who has mobility difficulties, whether you have a vehicle or scooter through the Motability scheme or you own one privately.
Can I bring the kids?
Yes, it is a fun day out for all the family. There is always a variety of lively entertainment at the show for children that may include clowns, face painters, balloon sculptors and musicians. A great, positive atmosphere is always guaranteed with plenty to see and do for everyone. The catering and toileting facilities are plentiful with easy level access for all.
Can I hire a wheelchair or mobility scooter?
Yes. Wheelchairs and mobility scooters can be pre-booked (subject to availability), and some will be available on the day. Details here.
Will I really get impartial advice?
Yes. A large number of organisations, charities and advice services will be able to provide you with impartial and independent advice on a wide range of mobility issues.
