Hi 
if you get enhanced rate for daily living can you still use your car for someone else’s mobility details if you use your car to drive the person who receives  full mobility?

    I don't understand the question you're asking. Enhanced daily living has nothing to do with using someone else's car.
    Are you asking if someone has Enhanced mobility can use that for free road tax? (VED) If so then doing this means the car can only be used for the purpose of the disabled person.
    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.

    to use someone else’s mobility on my car i cannot do? Even though i do drive the person to places 
    second question if i did the road tax I would not be able to drive my car at all then for other purposes?

    They are the exact same questions but put in a different way. If you tax your car using your friends mobility award then you will only be able to use it for their purposes.
    To claim the exemption or reduction the vehicle must be :
    • Registered in the disabled person’s name or their nominated driver’s name.
    • It must be only be used for the disabled person’s personal needs. That means the vehicle can’t be used by the nominated driver for their own personal use.
