When assessing your income and expenditure the official receiver has to consider expenses and define as reasonable or unreasonable depending on the justifications you provide to them. Vehicle rental, where the vehicle is necessary, rather than just desirable, may be allowed and this may be the same with the school fees. However you may need to prove that there is no other method of achieving the same travel or school requirements to justify these expenses.
