One Big Day Exeter returns for 2018

This July, One Big Day Exeter returns, offering disabled motorists and their families the chance to discover worry-free motoring with the Mobility Scheme. The display of vehicles for disabled people will be set up at Westpoint on Saturday 28 July following last year’s hugely successful event.

The event is free to attend with free parking for all visitors. One Big Day Exeter will continue the Motability Scheme’s programme of events taking place throughout the UK this summer.

Alison Beasley, One Big Day event manager, says: “We are excited to be bringing the One Big Day event back to Exeter. It’s a fun-packed day where disabled people and their families and friends can find out all they need to know about the Motability Scheme.

“Designed to help people find the best mobility options for their needs, visitors can take to the road on a test drive, explore the wide range of vehicles, scooters, powered wheelchairs and adaptations and meet our Motability Scheme advisors all under one roof.”

Visitors will have the chance to get behind the wheel alongside a professional driving instructor and test drive a range of vehicles, including a wide selection fitted with popular driving adaptations. Guests can book a test drive on the day by presenting their full driving licence to the test drive team.

The event will showcase over 80 vehicles from leading manufacturers including Ford, Vauxhall, Hyundai, and more. There will be a number of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) on display alongside a range of vehicle adaptations and scooters. Motability Scheme advisors will be on hand throughout the event to provide advice and useful information about the Scheme.

The event is enjoyable for the whole family with free children’s entertainment on offer. Balloon modelling, a bouncy castle and free face painting will all be available along with the chance to say hello to the Mobility Scheme mascot, Billy the Bear. Plus, on arrival all visitors will be treated to a token for a free cup of tea, coffee or a soft drink.
