I have messaged on this site and recieved amazing advice each time.
I do have a question which is similar to what i have asked before.
I am 27 and a dwarf standing at 4ft5, I went for an assesment for PIP last november and from that i was accepted for standard pip for daily living.
I could not understand why only for that because i have always had struggles to walking and standing and sitting in one position for a period of time.
I just left it because i didnt know where to go from that.
Here we are August 2017 and i had a driving assessment with QEF mobility to which for me to be able to drive i have to have an adapted car, i was also told there are no moblilty driving schools within the south of the UK that have adapted cars and i would need to get my own adapted car to have lessons in and to drive.
The adaption itself is £1000, for the adaption to be fitted it is £300 for insurance on a provisonal it is over £800 and i need to buy a car and have a duel brake fitted...
While i was at the mobility centre the person who was conducting the assessment assumed i am getting higher rate mobility allowance and thought i could get a car from that.
My question is what is best for me? I am so desperate to drive and be like everyone else but to pay nearly £5.000+ i simply cannot afford that or do i risk making a change of circumstances and try again and see if i can get higher rate for mobility? which also risks what i already have.
I hate the fact that i cannot even learn to drive or even practice in car parks.
Please advise me.
