Firstly, I hope everyone had a good Christmas.
I have used this forum quite a bit within recent months and again in need of a little advice if possible.
As most of you know i am a dwarf, i am 4ft 5 to be exact.
I am soon to be 28 and really would love to be able to drive, i see younger siblings and i see friends passing their tests and it disheartens me.
I have looked all over the internet and cannot find a driving school that can cater for my needs, pedal extensions.
I have had a driving assessment before with Queen Elizabeth in Carshalton in August and i was advised that it would be hard if not impossible to find a driving school that can teach me, however i have spoken to a few instructor and i was told that if i had my own car, installed a dual brake and pedal adaptions they can teach me.... however for the cost of an automatic car and dual brake and pedal extensions and for it to be fitted i am looking at £5000 and that is without taking a lesson.
That disheartens me because i know i cannot get that, i will not be able to do what most people can do.
My advise i do ask is, does anyone know what i can do? Does anyone know anyone in the same situation as me and found the light, Is there anyone out there who has been in my situation and got a result.
I have searched all over google and have seen people with my disability be reward a car via mobility due to higher rate of mobility and adaptions were made via mobility but unfortunately i was not awarded a rate of any mobility.
Please advise me if you can.
