    motability cars come with insurance for named drivers and i have never heard a mention of an age limit
    http://www.motability.co.uk/main.cfm?Type=AIE
    if you get higher rate dla and intend to get one of their cars, they also have a grant scheme for driving lessons for disabled 16?-25 year olds but you'd have to ring the grants department to ask.

    Is there a company that will do car insurance for a 16 year old in the UK? Higher rate mobility on DLA enables 16 year olds to learn to drive at 16, but I can't find a company that offeres insurance for me at 16.

    Thanks

    maybe you should look up online car insurance and find the lowest rate and the right insurance company for your son...

    Have you possibly thought it is much easier for a disabled person to get around in a city with modern public transport, than it is for an able-bodied person to get around, who lives somewhere quiet, or the countryside.

    Is it troll season already ?
    Just a silly person attention seeking-ignore em
    It's possible you may only be able to get insurance as part of a mobility package and it isn't sold seperately but oneof the disability helplines should be able to help you.
