only found this site today, im so happy to have found it.
anyway here is the quandry. I have hemiparisis and walk slowly with a stick. I drive a full automatic with hand controls My motability car is up for renewal in june. I've done 38000 miles in it due to needing it for work and travelling over 250 miles every 4 months to see family. I'm now worrying about taking out a new lease as i fear like many i will not get pip to use the motability scheme. I've got a few options:-
1. Just go for a new lease and worry about pip when times comes, pros in that i get a car, cons if i don't get pip i lose car and possibly my job.
2. Purchase a used car i saw one last weekend nissan note (which im after) 09 reg 9k on clock and the dealership were fantastic and very friendly understood about adaptions id need etc, pros the car will be mine, so if i dont get pip i still got my car, cons all the oulay on a car and getting a loan and putting a little more strain on family finances.
3. Ring motability to see if i can get a 1 year extension, on current contract, pros, still got my car, finances will be in a much better position, cons ive done over 38000 miles so i doubt it.
Sorry for the long post, its first time i've got it all of my chest any advice or thoughts would be great
