Driving Force Voluntary Car Driving Service in Harrogate & Knaresborough areas

Driving Force is a voluntary car driver service providing door-to-door transport for non-urgent trips. We help local people without access to their own transport and unable to use public transport due to mobility, disability or location to make journeys to: - Appointments - hospital, GP, dental, optical and podiatry - Day centres and lunch clubs - Shops, bank, post office and other essential trips - Social visits to relatives, hairdressers etc. We help people living in Harrogate, Knaresborough and the surrounding villages to make local journeys. Subject to an available driver, we can also help passengers to reach destinations outside the district e.g. to medical appointments in Leeds and York.
