Are you getting mobilty componant of DLA if not then it is a certain no to help with the cost of driving lessons. And I have a feeling that even if you are getting it you can't get help unless you are the person getting the benefit. I know there was a time when it was thought I would not be allowed to drive and my OH is epileptic we asked if we could get help with one driving lessons for my son who would have to do the driving and were told no. It might be different with parents but I would not be surprised if the answer was no.



If you are in receipt of DLA higher rate mobility component and under 25 and also receiving income support you can get help with lessons from the motability people, other than that I dont know.
