Westerly MINI is proud to be associated with Motability, a registered charity dedicated to helping disabled people and war pensioners obtain a new car through the Motability Car Scheme. All of Westerly MINI's sites are accredited and can deal with your enquiry.

What is the Motability Scheme?

Motability is an independent scheme which provides cost effective, affordable vehicle solutions. If you receive the Higher Mobility Component of the Disabled Living Allowance or the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement, you're eligible for a brand-new, fully taxed and insured vehicle. At Westerly MINI getting behind the wheel of a new Motability vehicle couldn't be easier. As Motability specialists, we support motorists with a disability to enjoy motoring at a lower cost by making our vehicles truly affordable and accessible.
The scheme allows you to use part of or all of this allowance and exchange it for a brand new car of your choice. With our wide range of market-leading brands, we have got a perfect selection to choose from. In addition to this you can also take advantage of insurance, road tax, servicing, tyres and breakdown cover. The most popular option for users is often the contact hire scheme, in which your regular single payment covers you for and includes a new car of your choice every three years, insurance and personal accident cover, servicing and maintenance, full breakdown assistance from RAC, and window or windscreen replacement at no extra cost.​


In some cases, your motoring experience could be dramatically improved by simply choosing the right MINI for your needs. Features such as automatic transmission, push button ignition and height-adjustable seating positions can all help make driving, or travelling, easier and are available on almost all MINI vehicles.
If however you do require adaptations to make your MINI easier, safer or more comfortable to use, you'll be pleased to know that many of the most popular ones are now available at no additional cost when fitted at the start of your Contract Hire lease. Others will require payment as part of your Advance Payment. The Motability Managed Adaptations Programme has been designed to cover the adaptations process for you from start to finish and to ensure that all work is carried out by an approved installer.
