Why is it that if it’s a only automatic license you have we drivers get hit with a more expensive advance payment on motability cars  so so unfair

    It’s because an automatic is more expensive to buy and it’s always been this way, not just for motability.
    You can apply for a grant through motability to help with the advance payment. Whether you will be successful will depend on what vehicle and spec you choose. The higher the spec the less chance of succeeding. https://www.motability.co.uk/contact/faqs/can-i-apply-for-financial-help
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
