Driving controls workshop - Surrey 13th January 2017

Are you new to the world of driving controls?  Have you recently had or have been thinking about having a driving controls assessment?

If you answered YES to the above questions, then you might be able to help Rica.

We’re looking for people who are new, or newish, to the world of driving controls to spend half a day with us at QEF Mobility Services, Carshalton, Surrey, on the 13th January 2017.

  • We’ll show you a selection of different driving controls from different suppliers and ask you some questions before and afterwards.
  • We’ll pay you your travel expenses plus £50 as a thank you for your time.
  • Please note this is independent of any personal driving assessment.

If you feel you’re able to help us with this work and find out more about the day, please contact me either by email: or telephone me on: 020 7427 2459. Thank you!   Eric Harris
