Important things to consider
Payment and cost for cars
The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair by exchanging their Government funded mobility allowance . If you receive either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) , the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.
Choosing a suitable car for you
When choosing a car, there is a lot to consider. Taking time to work out how you will use your car, the types of journeys you regularly make plus considering the things that are important to you in a car can help you choose a vehicle which will best meet your needs.
Take a test drive to choose the right vehicle
A test drive is important to help you choose the right vehicle. Even if you are not going to be driving yourself, you need to make sure the car is comfortable and suits your needs.
Greener car choices
We each have our part to play in reducing the environmental impact of our motoring and at Motability, we are working to increase the ‘greener’ choices available to you.
