PIP Mobility and giving up driving?

CJ61CJ61 Member Posts: 57 Courageous
If I decide to or am advised to give up driving due to declining health will I lose the mobility component of my PIP award or does it cover having to use Taxi's etc? I've a horrible feeling the scenario may be looming on the horizon and Id like some clarity as to where I stand. Thank you.

    Hi,

    This will make no difference to your mobility award because it's not about not being able to drive.

    Hi as Poppy has advised it doesn't affect your award, I get enhanced and had to give up driving due to vision loss I could have got an adapted car to allow me to drive with my amputation but no good if you cant see other than few arm lengths away
