Adaptations and the Motability Scheme
If you're finding driving or travelling is becoming more difficult or uncomfortable, a brand new car adapted to suit your needs could help. With the Motability Scheme, you can use your higher rate mobility allowance to lease a brand new car fitted with adaptations to help make accessing or driving a car, or stowing a wheelchair or mobility scooter easier for you or your carer.
What adaptations are available?
|Help with driving||Help with accessing a car||Help with stowing a scooter/wheelchair|
|Hand controls||Transfer plates||Boot hoists|
|Electronic accelerators||Swivel seats||Rooftop boxes|
|Left foot accelerators||Person hoists||Lightweight manual wheelchairs|
|Remote control devices|
A Motability Scheme lease typically lasts for three years and includes any servicing, maintenance or repairs for either the car or the adaptations.

The most important pieces of advice
- Not all adaptations are suitable for every type of car; it’s all about compatibility of car and adaptation. That’s why it’s so important to consider the adaptations you need before you choose your car
- Adaptation installers are the best people to give advice on which adaptations might best suit your needs, especially if you are considering stowage or access adaptations
- Not all adaptations on the Scheme are available from every installer. Once you know what you need, if the supplier you have been considering cannot supply it simply speak to another of our Scheme installers
- If you can’t see what you need on our full price list , please speak to our Customer Services team on 0300 456 4566 and we’ll work with you to find a solution.
