Enjoy Everyday Freedom with the Motability Scheme

The Motability Scheme allows you to exchange your qualifying mobility allowance for a brand-new car, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicle), scooter or powered wheelchair, so you can enjoy more freedom and independence.

If you're new to the Motability Scheme or renewing at the end of your existing lease, you're eligible for a £750 New Vehicle Payment*.

Who is eligible for Motability?

You can apply to join the Motability Scheme if you receive one of these disability allowances:

  • Higher rate mobility part of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Higher rate mobility part of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Enhanced rate mobility part of Adult Disability Payment (Scotland)
  • Higher rate mobility component of Child Disability Payment (Scotland)
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

You need to have at least 12 months left on your allowance when you apply. If you have less, you'll need to wait until your allowance provider renews your allowance.

If you're 65 or over, you can apply as long as you already receive one of the above allowances and it has at least 12 months left.

You cannot apply to join the Scheme if you receive a lower rate or component of mobility allowance, or Attendance Allowance.

How does it work?

If you receive one of the above qualifying benefits and have at least 12 months remaining on your award, you can apply for a Motability Scheme vehicle.

With the Motability Scheme, all or part of your mobility allowance is transferred to Motability Operations Ltd for the duration of the lease period. Some vehicles are available at less or no more than the cost of the weekly allowance, while other, more expensive vehicles, require an additional payment (known as an Advance Payment) to cover the cost of the lease.

What is Included?

You can name up to three named drivers for your vehicle and you get to choose a brand-new car every three years.

Your new vehicle package will include yearly tax, 60,000 mileage allowance over three years, or 100,000 for WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicles, many adaptations at no extra cost plus the following.
