I'm eligible for a mobility vehicle. Can I still lease a vehicle with provisional license?

Hello, not sure if I have this in the right section, but wanted to know if anyone has any info regarding mobility, I am eligible for a mobility vehicle I am currently waiting on a test date and wondered can I still lease a vehicle with a provisional license and have my lessons with my instructor in this car?

    Hi @rmcc :) Is this regarding the Motability scheme

    I've moved your post into our Motability, Blue Badge, and disabled motoring category, as that seems to be where it fits a bit better.

    Yes ....i am currently waiting for my provisional license to come through then i am going to get the car apply for help with lessons because found out that there's help available for that too (amazing!) And take lessons and test in that car as its all ok apparently i never thought id be able to learn to drive as too many obstacles in way ? But since my father looked into mobility support its brilliant! I mean i am still a bit worried i will be too anxious to drive? But I guess there's only one way to find out!  ???? Good luck @rmcc

    Obviously you would need L plates and to have a licensed driver who is older than 21 who has had a full license for at least 3 years with you while driving with the provisional? But can use it for lessons etc definitely ??
