About the Scheme
The Motability Scheme helps you get mobile by exchanging your higher rate mobility allowance to lease a new affordable car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
Peace of mind
All-inclusive lease with insurance, servicing, maintenance and breakdown cover included.
We negotiate with manufacturers to make sure we’re always offering you the best prices possible.
Simple and easy
Payments are automatically taken from your mobility allowance.
The Motability Scheme enables anyone in receipt of a higher rate mobility allowance (such as the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment or the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance) to use their mobility allowance to lease a car, scooter, powered wheelchair or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
How it works
You simply exchange all, or part of your mobility allowance to lease the vehicle of your choice. You choose the vehicle you want at a price that works for you, and payments are deducted from your higher rate mobility allowance every four weeks, then paid directly to us by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
Our standard lease is over three years, or five years if you are leasing a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle and we take care of running costs such as insurance for up to three named drivers (this doesn’t have to be you), servicing, maintenance, breakdown cover and tyre and windscreen repair and replacement. All you need to do is add fuel and go.
