  • Car, powered wheelchair or scooter
  • Insurance
  • Servicing
  • Tyres
  • Breakdown cover
  • Adaptations and wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) are also available through the Scheme.

  • Up to 14 hours tuition to pass your Theory Test including a free of charge Theory Test Study Pack to every learner worth over £20.00.
  •  A further 26 hours within which you will be working towards a pass on your Practical Driving Test.
  • Theory and Driving Test fees are not included.
