If you are eligible for the Motability Scheme, all you need to do is contact your local Motability Scheme dealer to make an appointment with their Motability Scheme specialist and arrange test drives Will download a resource(PDF 56KB) .
Before you visit a dealership, you can start your application from home by creating a Motability Scheme online account. Here you can enter your personal details and allowance information, and the details for up to two named drivers (if they have an England, Wales or Scotland driving licence) all before you visit the dealership. This will give the dealer more time to focus on finding the right car for you when you're at the dealership.
As part of your appointment, your dealer will take you through a Statement of Responsibilities form. This is designed to make sure the car you’re considering, and the Motability Scheme, is right for you. Once you have chosen a car, your dealer will complete the application for you online at the dealership.
You’ll need to take your Certificate of Entitlement, a recent utility bill, and the driving licences of any drivers to be insured. If your proposed driver is unable to come with you to the dealership, they must complete the Driver Fair Processing Declaration Form which gives DVLA authorisation to check their licence.
