Whoop, Whoop - just got my free car tax for high rate DLA. It makes a nice change to get something , Ive never had anything free or claimed anything before. Things have been a struggle lately, so this will help. as both me & my husband have had operations this year.
I would give anything to have my health back 100% but dont feel guilty for a little help as Ive always worked & paid my way. Infact I could of claimed DLA alot sooner , but had no idea there was such a thing. This forum has been a huge help.

    Enjoy it, lazicat. It's nice when something like that happpens. I used to get free car tax when I used to drive and had my own car. Unfortunately, I can't claim now as we both use the one car and Mr SW is fully fit. (Not complaining about that though :wink:)

    My car is only small so nowhere near that much, but still a saving for me. i would be lost without my car.
    I hope by posting this others may see it who like me didnt realise they were entiltled.
    I think you can get it if you share a car with your partner, as long as the car is used for you.
    Hope this helps other people.

    Alas, no :roll:
