    Default Motability - Some Advice Please

    I know this is something thats discussed before but i only need some answers to the below questions

    1. Can you freely put the disabled badge in any car if the " disabled " person is travelling in it, or is this assigned ONLY to the mobility car

    2. I know that the yearly tax for the car is included in the " package " BUT do you get a tax disc for a second car if there is one in the family

    Thanks

    Spenny - PM oldgit21 if you don't get a reply on here soon. He should be able to give you the answers . I'll try but please get the answers confirmed.

    Re #1 above, IIRC blue badge can be used in any car with said disabled person in it (the badge does not show vehicle reg. no..)

    #2 - not quite sure of the question . If I understand you correctly, the Motability pay for the tax on "their" car only, you get nothing for other cars in the household/family, which are taxed in the normal way.

    No 2 Mate, just as you said, how many cars get taxed through the scheme, if there are 2 cars in the family, does the scheme tax both, or just the mobility car ?

    There is a massive clampdown on the missuse of the Blue Badges by local councils at the moment.

    Our local council threw thousands of pounds our way to assist with catching and prosecuting offenders.

    Just beware if anyone is thinking of doing it.
