    Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do about that because you were charged with failing to stop which is quite serious. Have motability banned you for a certain length of time?
    Are you able to use the mobility payment to buy a vehicle? or do you have someone else that can be a named driver instead of you?
    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.

    Then your only other option would be to buy your own car.
