Independent Mobility Assessment Centres

If you think you would benefit from installing these adaptations on your vehicle then we recommend that you have a consultation at an independent Mobility Assessment Centre. These are staffed by occupational therapists and technical specialists who will advise you on which vehicles and adaptations are right for the needs of your disability. Your nearest Mobility Centre can be found here www.mobility-centres.org.uk/find_a_centre/listofcentres.htm

If you think that you require adaptations on your Fiat Motability car then please mention this to your local Fiat dealer who can order these, on your behalf, as well as ordering your vehicle.

 

If you require more substantial adaptations and alterations to your vehicle to allow access and egress then a Fiat Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) might be more suitable for your needs. Fiat works closely with a number of specialist conversion companies to deliver high quality mobility conversions to suit all budgets. Fiat works closely with all converter manufacturers to ensure these converted vehicles go through rigorous design, manufacture and extensive safety-testing.
