Hi all i was just wondering if any1 is on the scheme where you can get a new car if you or one of your family is on high rate disability.
I am currently waiting for my provisional to turn up so i can take my lessons and hopefully pass my test.
Is it a lot of messing about sorting the car out or is it pretty straight forward?
Thanx in advance :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

It's probably a LOT of messing about, everything to do with getting ANYTHING out of the DSS is.

You have to spend about 5 hours filling in the form, because they want to know EVERYTHING including how many times a day you use the karzy.

Rich, that really isn't helping the OP.

OP, my uncle gets one, he filled in a form, and within 6 weeks he got the list of cars to choose from. He gets a brand new one every year if he hands all his "book" in

Sounds sweet enough to me then fella, ive been looking at some of the cars they do, mouthwatering or what lol.
And my kids would just love having a car as it can be hard getting about with 3 kids, especially in the winter.
Thanx a lot for your help.:thumbsup:

Im going to regret feeding this troll but here goes.

Motabillity cars are not free. You pay for them by having you DLA deducted at source. So just as you pay for your car so do people who are disabled.

My son has severe asthma and can't walk any more than a few yards without getting out of breath, and we are constantly up in the middle of the night cleaning his sick up from when he's had an episode due to his dodgy breathing.
Get off your high horse, i bet you havent got many friends with the attitude you have got, get a life soft lad.:hihi:

You can always avoid losing your DLA by using the Access to Work grants, providing you're working,

What you get it for sod all at 1st? where did you come to this conclusion then Mr Brainbox, i think any1 in the world gets out of breath after walking a "long distance" my son only needs to walk a few yards, i doubt Mr Brown would even give you a Robin Reliant listening to the crap you spout :thumbsup:

I have a Motability car as I get the higher rate DLA. New car every 3 years, insurance, servicing and repairs paid for, it's great, can even get a grant for someone elses driving lessons if they help you!!! Well, apart from the whole disability thing that is :)

I didn't know that. My mum has recently had to return her car due to a worsening of her illness, so she now receives an electric wheelchair. She still works 16hrs a week. How could I find out about the Access to Work Grants?

Must be a real bind fillling a few forms out to get some free money.

Try working for a living, thats a real shhitter.

Corkers, have a look at this site http://www.motability.co.uk/main.cfm. I got a car a couple of months ago and found it quite straight forward. Only took a couple of weeks to sort out. It's made a real difference to me.

The hard part is getting DLA in the first place. Ignore the bloody trolls, if you or a member of your family is getting the higher rate then you must deserve it. Despite what some people may think, it isn't easy to get DLA.

Check the finance terms carefully as it can often be far more expensive than you'd expect. My son recieves high rate DLA but I won't have a mobility car due to the costs.
I'm sure theres a thread with a lot more detail in the disability and carers group?

It's put on a plate for you and you wont take it. Some people are beyond helping.

I have a friend disabled with AIDS, he gets a car through the Motability scheme and he's very happy with it. He has no issues with the form filling because he realises it's necessary for the administration of the scheme. Please stop whinging and make some effort to take advantage of what is on offer to you.

Really, have a look at some of the people getting out of the cars at your local supermarket D bays. Seems to me all you have to be is either over 60 or over wieght.

The gov want less cars on the rd and to save money, they should make it harder for people to get DLA, Did you know that if you are a registered drug-adict that you are entitled to DLA?:loopy:

I've spent more time in tribunals arguing the case for people to get DLA/AA to know that you have absolutely no idea at all of what you're talking.

why has this point come up yet again? it has absolutely no relevance to the thread? I dont work either but dont feel the need to mention it so often?
The only possible relevance is the fact that you do not drive, the car can be for someone who has to drive you around.
To the OP, this is the thread that might be useful

It's not always me that brings up my lack of paid employment, as much as I'd love to, I can't help the fact that clueless trolls can't handle the fact that I don't work for money, but have been doing voluntary work for various charitable companies for donkey's years!
