The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to use their government-funded mobility allowances to obtain a car.
Disabled people can use their Higher Rate Mobility Component Disability Living Allowance or War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement to meet the cost of leasing a car. Once the application has been accepted, they pay 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.
AM I ELIGIBLE?
The Scheme is open to anyone who receives one of the following benefits, and has at least 12 months' award length remaining when they apply:
Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement.
Rear parking sensors are included free of charge on all new Motability Mitsubishi’s, where rear sensors or a reversing camera are not already included as standard. No cash alternative available. Applications must be received and accepted between 1st January 2018 and 31st March 2018 by Motability Operations Limited.
