I have been receiving high rate mobility component DLA for a few years. I currently drive an automatic car which I share with my husband. The car is now badly in need of repair or replacing. As both my husband and I are unemployed and have no savings I was thinking about getting a car through the motability scheme. I understand that my husband will be able to drive the car when carrying out tasks for my benefit. Does anyone know if he would be able to use the car for his own use as well. I was really wondering if we would be able to share the car. I will need to have adjustments, probably for left foot acceleration or maybe hand controls. Being able to drive gives independence and keeps me in touch with the wider world because I can now only walk very short distance - just a few yards.
