    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope and will try to help advice you if i can.

    Can you explain please what you mean by "Your dad hold the PIP form of mobility"?

    Do you have a full driving license and have you got an Enhanced mobility award for yourself or is it your dad's mobility award?

    As it's your father's PIP award then he's the one that would need to order the mobility vehicle and the vehicle could only be used for his purposes and not your own.

    If you've had an accident within the last 5 years then yes you will need to tell motability about this accident, whether they refuse you to be added onto the insurance i don't know, you'll need to contact motability to ask them. If you have points on your license then you could be refused to be added for this but it will depend on the amount of points you have.

    If you're under the age of 25 then do be aware that there are some cars that you won't be able to drive at all. Hope this helps.
