A car doesn’t just get us from A to B.
It's a place for reflection, space and independence. A place for silence or for talk. Sat side by side, cocooned within this intimate, four-walled space we have precious time to spend with loved ones.
This experience is invaluable to everyone. Which is why we believe going for a drive should be accessible to all. It’s more than just a drive.
The Motability Scheme offers an all-inclusive package that allows anyone in receipt of either: the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HMRC DLA), the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP), the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP), to use their mobility allowance to lease a car, scooter, powered wheelchair or wheelchair accessible vehicle.
Rather than collecting a PIP allowance (Personal Independence Payment) this can be exchanged to lease a vehicle from a manufacturer using the Motability Operations programme.
The HRMC-DLA can be awarded to disabled children aged three and above. So, if you are a parent or guardian of a child who receives the allowance, you can order a car for use on their behalf. As long as you, or your child, receives either the HRMC-DLA or WPMS you are eligible to lease a car through Motability.
You should expect to receive the allowance for the full length of the agreement you choose. However, Motability accepts applications as long as you have at least 12 months of your award remaining when you apply.
There are a number of good options:
