Young carer and learning to drive

VannaVanna Member Posts: 1 Listener
 Hi my name is Vanna  I am 19 yrs old and live near Manchester .    Here is my question  Both my father and my brother are disabled  my father has a Motability car and is the only one of us that can drive.
Over  the last 6 months during Covid both of them have been shielding and I have become the primary Carer for the family, especially with the everyday things that invoke travel such as shopping  etc.  My father has been saying that I should learn to drive so that I could drive his Motability car for transport and that would work better for us as a family .     I want to learn but the cost is the barrier . Could anyone tell me if there is anywhere that might help with the cost Of driving lessons for a young carer to learn to drive ???

Thanks for taking time to read   .  Vanna
