- Wow you can get your driving lessons paid for
Probably Motability http://www.motability.co.uk/understanding-the-scheme/financial-help/
“Driving lessons: if you are a Motability customer aged between 16 and 24, you may be eligible for help towards the cost of lessons.”
Sounds like that stuff is paid for by the charity part of the business. It’s their money, if they want to help young disabled people keep some of their mobility and people want to donate money for it then good for them.
As for the ‘free car’ bit, the Goverment gives disabled people either £20 or £54 a week as the ‘mobility’ component of the disability living allowance. The receiver can choose to put this money towards a lease car from Motability, if the car costs more than £20/£54 a week then they have to pay the difference themselves.Posted 5 years agoskiMember

Are they asylum seekers? I read somewhere that on arrival, they all get a free taxed and insured new car, a 3 bedroom house in the area of their choosing, with a guitar shaped swimming pool, a gold-plated Faberge pineapple and a jetpack to nip to the shops on
Got your head stuck in the Daily Mail by any chance Binners? 😉Posted 5 years agoIHNMember
I overheard a man in the pub say that he knew a fella who’s wife was friends with someone who lived next door to an immigrant muslamic disabled lesbian with twelve kids and they all had iPads bought for them by the council and they have Sky telly with movies and everything and their house is worth about a million quid but they don’t pay for it it’s all on the DSS and they’re off on their holidays to Florida and it makes him sick. But some of his best mates are pakis.Posted 5 years agobinnersSubscriber
If they can’t get you a house with the full sized guitar-shaped swimming pool then you get a helicopter as compensation. And a lifetimes supply of both After Eight mints, and Haywards Silverskin Pickled onions.
Its all part of an EU ruling. It was in the Daily Express
I’m just proud i work for the stuff i own….
Same here. My job is to run a back-street operation amputating peoples least favourite limb, so they can qualify for a pope-mobile on the NHSPosted 5 years ago
‘Get’ and ‘do’ are not the same
What would you do?
I’d get a free iPad3, that’s what I’d do.
Doesn’t make any sense.
Its good that someone with your challanges has secured employment though. You should be proud.
nice to see that you can edit comments.
well done for that.Posted 5 years agopeterfileMember
This is anecdotal, but mrs peterfile works for BMW, a customer just had his new car lease paid for through some mobility deal because he has a handicapped 3 year old.
I have no view either way on the subject, but I would have thought that there are more suitable vehicles for carers than a 3 series, the indicators don’t even function properly?Posted 5 years agohoraMember
I’ve ZERO issue with people getting mobility cars. The money for the cars comes out of their allowance/benefit given which they can keep or pay on a car anyway. Even though I know of a couple of instances personally where the scheme was royally abused. Its the lessons bit. Yes people need mobility however lessons is an open-book over two years. At what point does the state say ‘whooa’ (then bin all that money that has already been spent?).
I can see both sides but social care -the total cost must be mind boggling.Posted 5 years agobailsSubscriber
Peterfile: He’ll have been given either £20 or £54 a week as DLA mobility component, he can choose to spend that any way he wants.
Surprised you can get a 3 series for ~£200 a month tbh!
Hora: It looked to me like the driving lessons were paid for by the Motability charity, the state isn’t paying for them.Posted 5 years agodavervanMember
I think it’s dreadful – all carers should, using their spare hand, start and run web-based retail empires, all become billionaires and all buy respective fleets of supercars. Then, with all their money, they could employ someone else to do the full-time caring…but then that person would also have to start a web-based empire…Posted 5 years ago
