I have commented on this page a few times before.
What i am going to say highlights what i have said previously, please bare with me.
My name is Natalie and i am 27, i have a disability, i am a dwarf.
Walking to and from public transport is not good for me and this has made me push further to wanting to drive and that it self is another hurdle.
I recently pass my theory and i am desperate now to start driving.... but their are no driving instructors within 100 miles of me that have an adapted car to teach me... so i have to purchase my own car and get the adaptions installed and dual brake to learn in my own car.
I am on JSA and PIP for living.
There is no way i can afford to pay for a car, insurance and tax, pedal extensions and a dual brake and pay for them to be fitted.
There are no grants that can help me and because i am not working no banks will allow me to have a loan.
I was thinking of a payday loan but that itself requires a guarantor to which i do not have as well.
I have contacted my MP to see if there is anyway they can help and i am still awaiting a response.
If anyone would employ me i would still need to save up for 3/4 months to be able to pay for all this and then it would be June before i even step foot into a car to learn.
I am so desperate to do this and kills me that it is made 1000 times harder for me to do something basic.
Please help me with advice, please if you can.
