The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to use their mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair.

Insurance, servicing and breakdown assistance are all included at no extra cost and car adaptations are available.

Family members and carers can also drive the car on behalf of the disabled person, so non-drivers can join the Motability Scheme. The vehicle should be used by, or for the benefit of, the disabled person.

The Motability Scheme is open to those who receive:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA),
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP),
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS), or
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).

Motability, as a national charity, may be able to provide charitable grants to disabled people who would otherwise be unable to afford the vehicle, adaptations or driving lessons they need.
