Mobility vehicles, car adaptations and equipment for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities

If you are unable to use a standard car due to your needs, you could:

Motability vehicles

If your needs make it hard for you to get about, and you receive a benefit for this, you can get a vehicle from Motability.
