The Motability Scheme
The Motability Scheme enables anyone receiving one of the following government-funded mobility allowances to lease a new car simply by exchanging their mobility allowance to cover the cost of the Motability car:
- Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC of DLA)
- Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC of PIP)
- War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
- Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
Also, to qualify you need to have at least 12 months of your award remaining.
Over the past 35 years the Motability scheme has helped more than three million people get mobile and there are currently around 600,000 customers enjoying the benefits of a Motability car, so rest assured you’ll be in great company! With a car from Motability you can look forward to worry-free motoring, which means you can get on and enjoy life while we take care of the day to day running of the car. Whether it’s a trip to the shops or a day out in the countryside, a Motability car can make your journey easier and more relaxed.
You can lease through Motability if you are the parent or guardian of a child aged three or over who receives the allowance. Also, if you receive the allowance but are unable to drive, you can nominate two other people to drive on your behalf.
