I have had an IVA since Oct’15. I get high rate DLA. My car is now 16yrs old and is costing me a fortune to fix each yr for mot. My insurance is also higher as I live in N.Ireland. Things would be so much easier if I could get a motability car. Things are very tight as I can’t work due to my disability and I live on my own. Is there any way around this?

If the loss of benefit to pay for the mobility car is similar to the gains from not having to maintain the old car your IP should be agreeable. Certainly worth getting some figures together and having a chat.

I would certainly look into that. No need to pay for repairs and you get a new car every three years.
