The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to use their government-funded mobility allowances to obtain a car.
Motability is a UK charity that enables anyone who's eligible for a higher rate mobility allowance to lease a brand-new car, with insurance, maintenance and breakdown cover all included.The Motability Scheme is designed to be straight-forward and stress-free. You simply lease the vehicle, paying for it out of your mobility allowance.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Motability Scheme enables anyone in receipt of a higher rate motability allowance (such as the Enhanced Rate of the Motability Component of Personal Independence Payment or the Higher Rate Mobility Component Disability Living Allowance) to use their mobility allowance to lease a car. The Scheme provides flexible and hassle-free access to a brand new, reliable vehicle of your choice – giving you greater freedom, everyday. Once the application has been accepted, the customer pays all, or part of their allowance to Motability for the period of the agreement.
Customers can choose a new car every three years with insurance, road tax, servicing, tyres and breakdown cover all included. A wide range of adaptations are also available.
