    Hu there 

    I would suggest getting a car private as with motability scheme she could only use the car when you are with her or if she was doing something on your behalf 

    The car would need to be kept at your property 

    I don't know the age allowed to drive on motability sorry

    If you get a mobility vehicle then you need to make sure it's suitable for those under 25 to drive, otherwise she won't be able to drive it. It will tell you on the motability website if the vehicle is suitable for under 25's.

    As advised by Janer, the vehicle would need to be kept at your house, not hers.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
