I've been having a serious think recently about Persuing motability with my enhanced mobility element of PIP.
I've been and had a look at Fiat 500s and I'm waiting for the motability person at the local dealer calling me back to discuss details.
I was surprised that I can have the top model and a decent spec for only £199 advance payment and my mobility allowance each week. It also includes servicing, insurance, breakdown etc. I never passed my test when younger and I'm thinking of going for an auto for ease. I can drive and I've always been around cars I was just never bothered after a few lessons. After speaking to motability I can apply for driving lessons through the scheme as I'm on a low income which is great.
I have to order the car, give them my PiP evidence, driving license details for verification then contact motability and ask them for an assessment for adaptations and a form to apply for lessons. I'm hoping to do it in the next couple of weeks so all being well I may be on the road by the summer
Primarily the car will be for someone else to drive me as I'm fed up with asking and expecting others to drive me then them refusing payment or having to get taxis. It would be nice to just get to my doctors easier or nip out if I need without a struggle.
I'm hoping it all runs smoothly as it seems too simple - nothing is ever that simple in reality ha ha
All the best
