Hi, this is a bit long.

I am just in the process of get my drivers license back after having to have surrendered it due to some medical treatment that didn’t go to plane.

My Wife has just had to surrender her drivers license because at the beginning of last summer (2018) she acquired an autoimmune disease called Miller Fisher Syndrome and spent a significant period of time in ICU before being transferred to a long term rehabilitation hospital. As a result she’s semi paralyzed and has reduced eye function, speech impediment, limited movement and reduced confidence.

 

we are getting a car soon and it’s going to be put onto disabled road tax but how do we do this.

Since I’ll be the owner/driver but it’s my wife who is disabled.

do we need to register the car in my wife’s name but insure it in my name?

Or is there some other way we need to do this.

 

Any help will be very much appreciated.

cheers.

You can apply for exemption from paying vehicle tax if you get the:

 

higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)

enhanced rate mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

War Pensioner’s Mobility Supplement

Armed Forces Independence Payment

The vehicle must be registered in the disabled person’s name or their nominated driver’s name.

 

It must only be used for the disabled person’s personal needs. It cannot be used by the nominated driver for their own personal use.
