Up to two hundred disabled people a week are losing their right to a Motability vehicle, due to draconian welfare changes.
Estimates suggest that between 150 to 200 disabled people lose their right to a Motability vehicle each week, after being transferred from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to the new Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
PIP is replacing DLA for all disabled people over the age of sixteen.
A toughening of the testing regime under PIP means that some severely disabled people, who would have qualified for a Motability car when claiming DLA, are no longer eligible.
