Abby, just accept that they’re looking after taxpayer’s money. It’s just part of the process.
DLA is primarily about mobility and care, so they need to assess how independent you may be and how far you can walk unaided.

I’ve always worked & do quite well but its reaching a point where i will have to give up my beloved subaru.i still have my job to return to but after losing so much time off work i can’t afford to run my car.dilema is i have a job but can’t get there because my legs tire to quickly & knees hurt to much to walk or catch 3 buses.all i need is transport & the tax i pay from working is more than they pay for mobility benefit.its hard & confusing but don’t give many people fake it to claim but sounds like you need some help so don’t give in til you get it.good luck

Access to Work is great if you have trouble getting to work. Don’t think they’ll pay for petrol, but I get a taxi to work. They may pay for petrol, but don’t think they’ll pay to maintain that beast of a car 😉
