Motability Scheme Eligibility

Our Motability Scheme enables people with disabilities to lease a car, powered wheelchair or scooter simply by using their government-funded mobility allowances. Customers exchange their allowance for a worry-free mobility package, including:

  • Car, powered wheelchair or scooter
  • Insurance
  • Servicing
  • Tyres
  • Breakdown cover

Adaptations and wheelchair accessible vehicles are also available.

Am I entitiled?

You may be entitled to our Motability Scheme if you receive the following:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

You need to have at least 12 months award length remaining when you apply. An application for a car can also be made on behalf of a child aged three or older, who is entitled to the mobility allowance. Even if you don't drive, but receive the allowance, you can apply for a car as a passenger and propose two other people as your drivers.

If you are under 65 and have a disability but are not currently receiving the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the DLA you may be entitled to this allowance.
