Motability

Summary
The Motability Scheme enables disabled people 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.


Description

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people 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 the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA), War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS), the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) or the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Armed Forces Independence Payment. 

The Motability Scheme is operated by Motability Operations Limited under contract to Motability. Motability is a national charity which sets the strategic policies and direction of the Motability Scheme and oversees its performance to ensure that it meets the needs of disabled people.
