Im in an IVA ... and have moved recently to an area where work opportunities really are not that great . So my mum has offered to pay for me to take driving lessons . Would this be OK?

I see no reason why mum paying for lessons would cause impact to your iva.
Obviously once passed you will need to assess your income and expenditure if you intend to purchase a car to allow for insurance, tax and the petrol etc. How will you fund the buying of a car?

I, too, see no immediate issues, but I would suggest that she pays the instructor direct (or gives you cash to do so) so that there are not any stray deposits showing in your bank account which an overzealous case handler might mistake for extra income. It is easier to avoid that potential problem than it is to sort it out afterwards !
