The Motability Scheme enables people with disabilities to use their government-funded mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair. Insurance, servicing and breakdown assistance are all included at no extra cost and car adaptations are available.
Family members and carers can also drive the car on behalf of the disabled person, so non-drivers can join the Motability Scheme. The vehicle should be used by, or for the benefit of, the disabled person.
The Motability Scheme is open to those who receive any of the below:
- the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
- the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
Motability may be able to provide charitable grants to people with disabilities who would not otherwise be able to afford the car, adaptations or wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) they need on the Motability Scheme.
