I went to the Reading pip assessment centre yesterday. It is situated on the corner of kings road and duke St., I was dropped off right outside by my disability mini bus, they pulled up and it was literally a few steps to walk in all on one level, wide doors for wheelchair users too. There is a small reception area where you check in, there's a chair to sit on whilst you are giving your ID and letter then once you have done that they tell you your assessors name and you then wait on the chairs directly behind you, you wait there until someone comes for you, you then go through a door where there about 4 or 5 small offices, you sit opposite you assessor whilst they are talking to you. There was disabled parking on kings street but it would be quite a walk if you are still ambulant. I would say it easier to be dropped at the door. The centre was very nice and new and so were all the people I came into contact with. It was as scary as I expected!!
