    Hi there,

    Interesting ! .................. Just been reading the post about Road Car Tax Exemption (bet me and few more didnt know either) saying that Im not even
    "at any DLA/claiming any benefits stage" but may be starting ball rolling after Rheumy hosp visit this thursday 14th May.

    Can any people here answer my few important questions (briefly first, I do not have a car provided/or whatever arrangement you call it (motability or free vehicle) secondly, I at present get no benefits WHATSOEVER. I have my own private car/ PAY FOR EVERYTHING. So :-

    Are you saying this FREE CAR TAX EXEMPTION is only warranted if you are on BENEFITS, or could I still apply for it. (I do supposedly have lupus, reynauds, and have fibromyalgia and possibly arthritis "in there").

    Any urgent replies, that will consistently help me, would be much appreciated.

    Hugs and Love Diane X

    Hello, If you get High Rate Mobility you will qualify. Not means tested so the issue of other Benefits is not important.
    Can even get it for a car regularly used to help you even if not yours. Only one vehicle though.
    Hope that helps. I have benefitted from this for years.

    They are very helpful if you need to ring.

    Hi Diane you do have to be on DLA high rate get free road tax.As for a free car no there is no such thing as a free car.What you do get is a car on the MOtabilaty Scheme and that is deducted of your Disabilaty it comes of once a month.I have just taken on my 3rd car on the scheme it is great.But you must be awarded DLA at the high rate for 3 years or more.Elisabeth
