The RACQ Mobility Centre of Excellence currently offers premium real-world driver facilities and will also be developed into a world class facility for research, innovation, driver training and testing of connected and autonomous technologies – the first of its kind in Queensland.

At RACQ, we’re pioneering the future of smart mobility solutions. While we remain dedicated to improving the safety of Queensland drivers, vehicles and the roads of today, we understand the world is changing and so too are our transport needs.

New technologies are rapidly evolving, influencing the way people travel and think about mobility. While it is difficult to predict how we will use transport in the future, RACQ is committed to be an active participant in its evolution.

Located in Mount Cotton, Brisbane, the RACQ Mobility Centre of Excellence offers a wide range of real-world training and testing environments – including city intersections, off-road terrain, road circuits, large vehicle manoeuvring areas and rural settings which can be configured for a range of scenarios and weather conditions. The Centre will bring together highly skilled minds to tackle the biggest challenges in smart mobility technology – developing transport that is greener, faster and cheaper focusing on safer drivers, in safer vehicles on safer roads.

The RACQ Mobility Centre of Excellence vision is to be a globally recognised thought leader and centre of excellence, for the development, testing and transition of technology and systems that promote safe and sustainable transport solutions for all.

The RACQ Mobility Centre of Excellence will provide a balance of community and commercial use opportunities, promoting driver safety and best practices. Safety, sustainability and environmental impacts are at the forefront of the Centre, which aims to have a much broader positive impact by reducing crashes, injuries and deaths.

The Centre will also offer state of the art driver training and educational facilities across a wide range of users and high-risk groups, supported by expanded conference and training facilities.

The Centre is founded on three principles of operation

Vision zero
