Can you help financially with adapting a car or WAV for me to drive from my wheelchair?
We can support customers with independent driving solutions, enabling you to drive from your wheelchair or transfer internally from your wheelchair to the driving seat.
The funding available from Motability (the Charity) is limited and, due to the high cost and complex nature of vehicles converted for use by wheelchair users, we have to prioritise applications for financial support to ensure help goes where it is most needed.
We are unable to support everyone who applies for financial help and have to concentrate the funds towards those who need it most. We consider, among other things, the need to: access work, drive to a place of study, your caring responsibilities, attendance at appointments, hospital visits and whether care or support is in place to achieve essential mobility needs.
If we are unable to support with this type of solution we will discuss any potential alternatives for you.
