Driving Lessons

  • Are you a Motability Scheme customer?
  • Do you have a provisional licence and want to learn to drive your Motability Scheme car?
  • Or do you need familiarisation with new controls in your grant-funded vehicle?
  • And do you receive a means-tested benefit?

If you’ve answered 'yes' to these questions, then you could be eligible for a grant to help with the cost of driving lessons.

Chris's driving lessons story

Chris Bruce has a Motability Scheme car. He passed his driving test with the help of a charitable grant from Motability Foundation. 

A gentleman is sitting in his car, wearing a bright blue jacket.

“I was told by doctors that I wouldn’t be able to drive – I’ve proven them wrong! Since receiving a driving lessons grant with Motability Foundation and passing my test, life is a lot better. Thank you Motability Foundation!

“I was really pleased with my driving instructor. He was easy to connect to and we built up a good friendship over the time I was learning to drive.

“The car helps me so much with seeing my friends and family, going to doctor’s appointments, and keeping my independence. All the voluntary work I do and college would be impossible without my car. It has given me a new lease of life. I have so much more freedom now.”

Chris has epilepsy, Asperger's Syndrome, dyspraxia and dyslexia. He drives an automatic, which has a reversing camera and parking sensors.
