Motability Scheme for disabled persons

Motability Scheme

The Motability Scheme provides a simple way to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair without the worry of owning and running one.

Today, over 600,000 disabled people and their families enjoy the everyday freedom from leasing a vehicle through the Motability Scheme.

When you lease a car through the Motability Scheme, all or part of your mobility allowance is paid directly to Motability Operations Ltd for the length of the agreement.

What is available?

You can choose to lease a car, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV), scooter or powered wheelchair through the Motability Scheme.

With the Motability Scheme you can lease a car for three years or a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) for five years.

Vehicle adaptations are also available, many at no additional cost, to help with access, equipment loading and driving.

If you do not drive, you can nominate somebody to drive for you, as long as the vehicle is used for your benefit. This means that parents and carers can join the Scheme on behalf of a child aged three and above.

You can choose to lease a new vehicle with the following included:

  • Insurance
  • Servicing and maintenance
  • Full breakdown assistance
  • 20,000 mileage allowance per year of your lease
  • Window and windscreen repair or replacement
  • Replacement tyres

Vehicles are available from the major manufacturers. Some cars are available at less or no more than the cost of the weekly allowance, while other more expensive cars require an additional payment (known as an Advance Payment) to cover the cost of the lease.
