New Motability Cars - Test Driving A New Motability Or Adapted Car
New Motability cars come in all shapes, sizes and styles. A test drive is the best way to make sure you have the best vehicle for your unique needs. It is worth taking a friend with you, more so if they also act as your nominated driver and will either be driving the vehicle or helping you in and out of it on a regular basis.
If you intend to purchase an automatic mobility car, it is worth calling ahead to the dealership to ensure they have the model you want to test drive as these are fewer and farther between. Before getting to the dealership, write a checklist of specific features you want and need in your new car. Letting the dealer know your needs before you get to the dealership allows them to help you find the best vehicle for you. Do you need wheelchair accessible vehicles or an adapted car?
When you view the vehicle, check whether it is easy to get in and out of. This will have a big impact on it suitability for you. So it is best to try this out several times. Are the doors and seats wide enough and do they give you enough space? Can you shut the door without leaving your seat and can you reach anything else you need from your seating or driving position? Make sure the seat and driving position are comfortable and that nothing you need to operate such as the doors are too heavy for you to use.
