How Motability have helped Scheme customer Katie
Thanks to the money Motability raise from fundraising initiatives, Motability were able to offer Katie a charitable grant towards driving lessons in her Motability Scheme vehicle.
Katie is keen to pass her driving test and regain the independence she lost when she became ill in 2013.
"Finding out that I could learn to drive at 16 and could even get my own car through the Motability Scheme definitely helped. I love driving and can't wait to pass my test and go out on my own - I can even drive myself to college where I am studying to be a media make-up artist."
Katie first became interested in make-up when she became ill - watching online tutorials helped her pass the time when she could do nothing but rest. Despite having a year off school due to her illness, she managed to achieve the qualifications she needed to do her chosen course at college.
