    This use breaks the signed Statement of Responsibilities, at 1 and 2. The car will only be used for the benefit of the disabled customer and The car will be kept at the address provided.

    Motability states if another named driver is accepted under their insurance, depending on the age of the individual they may also use the vehicle for the purposes of the person in receipt of Mobility Allowance.

    This does not permit the other named driver to use it for their own use to a place of their employment. This is a violation of the terms of agreement that you sign upon accepting the vehicle.

    according to the agreement rules it would be NO ,BUT if that person driving that car is earning a wage to up hold the household income then i would use that as my arguement, also if that person was at work and you needed them obviously it's quicker to get back to you in a car than walking or pulic transport

      The following paragraph does not state a named driver can use the vehicle for driving to their place of employment, which would probably break Motabilities Terms & Conditions. You certainly would not be covered by the RSA Insurance if involved in an accident, if you stated you were going to work in a Motability vehicle for a person that receives Motability Allowance! rolleyes

      "The car is used by, or for the benefit of, the disabled person. This does not mean that the disabled person needs to be in the car for every journey. In practice, this means other named drivers in the household can use the car for shopping and other routine activities, as long as the disabled customer will benefit"
