Can I acquire a mobility vehicle without claiming benefits?

Hi all I am Gill, I work full time but thankfully I have a sit down job, although it does require me to do other tasks. I had my 5th and 6th vertebrae fused in 2001 this left me with severe pain and other side effects since the op. I was diagnosed a few years ago with Fybromialga as well as Osteoarthritis, which has caused me to have difficulties doing just about everything. I am in pain if I try and walk to the end of the road, I miss out on a lot of family things because of it. Now I have pain all over but I keep on going to my job that I love. I don't want benefits, all I want really is an automatic car to help with my pain. It seems silly to me that to qualify for the mobility car I would need to be claiming benefits. Who can help me? any advise would be welcome at this point.
