Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) Taster Experience

Join us at The Big Event Birmingham and One Big Day Peterborough to see a large display of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs), adaptations, cars, scooters and powered wheelchairs. Free to attend, the events are particularly useful if your are considering a WAV as it is the only place you can see over 20 models from many different suppliers all under one roof.

Exclusive at The Big Event Birmingham and One Big Day Peterborough, we are running passenger WAV taster experiences. The experience will allow people who have never travelled in a WAV and who are considering one for the very first time, to experience what it's like.

What's a passenger WAV taster experience?

The WAV taster experiences are available in either a small, medium or large WAV, depending on which is the most suitable vehicle to fit the size of your wheelchair and your lifestyle needs. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure we provide a wide range of vehicles to meet the vast majority of our visitors, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that everyone will be able to have a passenger WAV taster experience.

It's important to note that these WAV taster sessions are not a replacement for a home demonstration as passengers cannot specify which WAV they would like to try. We hope that these short tasters will give people considering a passenger WAV for the first time, a feel for what it's like before arranging a home demonstration. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Unfortunately we're only able to provide passenger WAV taster experiences. If you are interested in a Drive From WAV, experts will be on hand to answer your questions and arrange a home demonstration for a later date. 

How can I book a passenger WAV taster experience?

Each passenger WAV taster experience takes place with a qualified driving instructor and lasts around 30 minutes. A specialist Motability Scheme representative will be on hand to assist with selecting the right vehicle for you and answering any questions you may have.

Taster experiences can only be booked on the day, simply:

  1. Visit the WAV booking desk in the test drive area 
  2. The dedicated team will measure your wheelchair and ask a number of lifestyle questions to determine which WAV (small, medium or large) is most appropriate for you.
  3. That’s’re ready to try a WAV!
  4. When it's your turn, a representative from our WAV suppliers will assist you into the WAV and restrain your wheelchair.
  5. Now it's time to hit the road!
