Unfortunately, it’s not possible to test drive Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles at the event. However, there will be lots of experts to answer questions and arrange a home demonstration.

Booking your test drive is simple.

  1. Test drives can only be booked on the day at the event
  2. Visit the test drive booking desk to find out which cars are available and to choose the car you would like to test drive
  3. Show the photocard part of your full UK driving licence to the test drive team. It’s important that you bring your driving licence with you on the day as you will not be able to test drive any vehicles without it
  4. Sign our Test Drive Declaration Form on the day (this simply says you agree to our terms and conditions, which you can find below, and that you meet the test drive eligibility criteria)
  5. That’s it... you’re ready to take your test drive!

To take a test drive, you must have a full UK driving licence and have no more than either:

  • 3 (three) penalty points, which may have been accrued for any conviction; OR
  • 6 (six) penalty points in any one, or combination, of the following conviction categories: Speeding (SP), Construction and Use Offences (CU), Pedestrian Crossing (PC) or Traffic Signs/Directions (TS)

Any penalty points/endorsements over and above those listed above mean you will be unable to complete a test drive as a driver. Any endorsements with a conviction date of more than 5 (five) years’ old will not be counted.

For anyone unable to bring their driving licence with them because it is with the DVLA for renewal, we will check licences digitally. To do this please visit the DVLA website (www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence) and generate a share code. You must give this code to the test drive booking team for your licence to be checked digitally. You will also need to provide photo ID and sign our standard test drive declaration form. 

  1. These terms apply to the test driving of vehicles during any event hosted by Motability Operations Limited in 2023.
  2. All test drives are subject to availability. Motability Operations Limited will endeavour to provide a driver with a vehicle of their choice; however, this may not always be possible. No charge is made for the test drives.
  3. All test drivers will be accompanied by an instructor supplied by Rapiergroup.
  4. To qualify for a test drive, the driver must have a full UK driving licence and have no more than either:
    • 3 (three) penalty points, which may have been accrued for any conviction; OR
    • 6 (six) penalty points in any one, or combination, or the following conviction categories: o Speeding (SP)
    • Construction and Use Offences (CU)
    • Pedestrian Crossing (PC)
    • Traffic Signs/Directions (TS)
      Any penalty points or endorsements over and above those listed above will not be permitted and the driver will be unable to complete a test drive. Any endorsements with a conviction date of more than 5 (five) years’ old will not be counted. The test driver must produce the photocard part of their valid driving licence to the driving instructor and sign the Test Drive Declaration Form prior to any test drive taking place.
  5. The acceptance of a driver for a test drive is at the absolute discretion of the driving instructor, Motability Operations Limited or Rapiergroup, who all reserve the right to refuse a test drive for any reason
  6. Insurance for the test drive vehicles will be provided by Motability Operations Limited for one driver (subject to clause 4 above). The insurance excludes speed testing, pacemaking or competitive driving
  7. Any property left or carried in the vehicle during the test drive is at the test driver’s own risk. Test drivers must ensure that they remove any personal belongings from the vehicle at the end of the test drive, as Motability Operations Limited nor Rapiergroup will be held liable for any damage.
  8. The test driver will be responsible for payment of any fixed penalty fines incurred during the test drive, for example, speeding fines.
