How the Scheme works

The Motability Scheme enables anyone in receipt of a qualifying mobility allowance to use their mobility allowance to lease a car, scooter, powered wheelchair or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV).

How it works

You simply exchange all, or part of your mobility allowance to lease the vehicle of your choice. You choose the vehicle you want at a price that works for you, and payments are deducted from your allowance every four weeks, then paid directly to us by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or Veterans UK.

Our standard lease is over three years, or five years if you are leasing a WAV.

All-inclusive leasing

We take care of all the below running costs, so all you need to do is add fuel and go: 

  • Insurance (for up to three named drivers for cars and WAVs)
  • Servicing, maintenance and repairs due to general wear
  • Breakdown cover
  • Tyre repair and replacement
  • Windscreen repairs

Before you lease a vehicle through the Motability Scheme, you’ll need to make sure that you’re happy with the Scheme’s terms and conditions and understand how the vehicle can be used .
