Young disabled drivers are permitted to gain their provisional licence a year early, at 16, if they receive the enhanced rate mobility component of PIP.

Driving Mobility coordinates a network of over 20 centres, many with outreach facilities, which provide ‘fitness to drive’ and mobility equipment assessments.

Supported by The Department for Transport, Driving Mobility Approved Driving Instructors (ADI) and Occupational Therapists (OT) guide and support individuals who self-refer or are signposted from the DVLA, Motability, Police and NHS.
