TGA, the UK-leading mobility scooter specialist based in Suffolk, will be holding a free-to-attend event at its Sudbury independent living showroom, so East Anglia residents with restricted mobility can learn how to own and drive a mobility scooter safely.
TGA Mobility, Woodhall Business Park, Sudbury, CO10 1WH.
15th September 11am-3pm. Free entry, ample level parking and free refreshments.
Owning a mobility scooter provides independence to people who have difficulties with walking or general mobility. However, it is essential that existing and potential scooter owners choose the ideal model for their needs so confidence, comfort and safety is maximised.
TGA have been supplying quality and reliable mobility scooters for over 30 years and consider the suitability of their products, along with owner safety, to be top priority. Hence TGA is hosting a free event that will offer all the latest advice regarding safe mobility scooter driving along with guidance on owning the ideal model for individual lifestyles. With ownership of the right mobility scooter and heightened road safety awareness, the benefits of driving a mobility scooter can be limitless.
Professional TGA advisors will be on-hand throughout the event to guide scooter drivers around the fun mobility scooter test track. This will be a friendy and relaxed driving experience which will give scooter users a better understanding of their own capabilities in terms of steering, reversing and negotiating day-to-day obstacles. Crossing roads in a considered manner and understanding aspects of the Highway Code will be explained in a simple manner so drivers and pedestrians can all benefit from improved safety. This is not a driving test with a pass or fail score, it is simply an awareness programme that offers an informal certificate of completion at the end.
Whether locals own a mobility scooter or not, or are interested in trying one for the first time in a safe place, then all are welcome as TGA will have its complete range of quality scooters available for test drives. Representatives from Motability, the popular leasing scheme, will be available along with assessors from Autochair, the car- boot scooter and wheelchair hoist specialists.
Daniel Stone, TGA Managing Director commented: "We are always committed to supporting our customers both locally and nationally to ensure they remain safe and can enjoy hassle-free freedom. Our forthcoming free safe scooter driving day is indicative of the essential advice and guidance we provide through our three decades of mobility experience. We would encourage everyone with a need for greater independence to visit us on the 15th September as this fun and relaxed event coincides with our showroom summer sale."
