I pay £25 a week from DLA payments. That pays for the machine, the insurance, the road tax [which I think is free] RAC which means I would get picked up and brought home with the machine. Also maintenance. I am committed for three years unless I get better [covers other illnesses] when I can give it up.
My mother says it would be better to have had a car - but I don't drive and my meds actually make me a liability anyway! Shhhh about that. I am very careful to have my meds afterwards not before as my judgement is impaired.
Anyway, she feels it would have been better to have bought a scooter and got it insured with the RAC by myself. Would that have been possible and has anyone else done that?
I am signed up for another 2 1/2 years yet. I thought it was a good scheme until she said that.
