Motability Scheme FAQ's
The Motability Scheme enables people in receipt of a higher rate mobility allowance to lease a car.
The Scheme is designed to make the process as simple as possible for its customers, bundling insurance, breakdown cover and servicing costs all into one agreement.
This means you only pay for the car's fuel. Lease payments are made directly from the relevant benefits agency (DWP or Veterans UK). To make sure you always get the most from your allowance, prices are negotiated and updated every three months.
Parents or guardians can apply on behalf of a child under 16. You just need to have at least 12 months remaining on your award to apply.
- Anyone who is in receipt of one of the following higher rate mobility allowances can apply to join the Scheme.
- Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS
- Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
Many adaptations and wheelchair-accessible vehicles (WAV) are available at no extra cost. You can find out more information here.
When you place the order for a car through the Motability Scheme, it will take a couple of days to process the application and check a few details. The timescales for the car itself can vary depending on the manufacturer and model you have chosen.
The Motability Scheme covers your car/WAV for “social, domestic and pleasure purposes”. Basically, this means you can use the car for personal purposes and commuting to and from one workplace.
