    Hi @sellars09

    If you receive the enhanced rate of PIP mobility then it is my understanding that you can either choose to have a car or a mobility scooter.

    If not, perhaps you could try the Local Authority, although with current budget cuts they may be a bit reluctant, or you could try to get a grant from somewhere like Independence at Home http://independenceathome.org.uk/

    Good luck!

    Kind regards,

    Mary
