Southern Mobility Assessment & Tuition Specialists was established in 1997, located in Cork, Southern Ireland.
We are a professional indemnity insured company registered in Ireland.
Having first acquired The Driving Instructor Register qualification, our A.D.E.P.D. “Structured Tuition” certification, further enhanced our skills so we could provide tuition and assessment for older drivers and people with disabilities.
In 2000, we acquired certification for The Driving Instructor Register administration and examination process.
In 2006, we acquired an automatic car and adapted it to the most modern standards, providing tuition, assessment and demonstration.
In 2007, we began to provide a training course for driving instructors. The programme promoted awareness, provided knowledge of vehicle adaptations, and taught ADI’s the skills in teaching people with disabilities to drive.
In 2008, we launched our website. Our intentions with the website was to create awareness, provide information pertaining to driving issues experienced by older drivers and drivers with disabilities.
In 2011, we qualified for the Road Safety Authority’s Approved Driving Instructor qualification (RSA ADI No. 37270).
In 2011, Tomás O Callaghan of Southern Mobility, was awarded The Leading Lights Award in Road Safety. The Leading Lights Award celebrate the outstanding efforts of people to improve road safety in their community.
