    How long will it take to get my new Motability Scheme car?

    The time taken to get a new car can vary depending on manufacturers and the model you have ordered. You should ask your chosen supplying dealer the expected/estimated delivery time when making the application and remain in contact with them until the collection date. Your dealer should also let you know if there are any delays to your new vehicle being delivered.

    Please note that ongoing challenges in the motoring industry are leading to a shortage of new cars at this time and this is expected to continue into 2022. It is worth checking with the dealership if the car you are interested in is in stock or whether it will need to be ordered from the manufacturer, which may well mean a delay. A comparable car from a different manufacturer may be available sooner.

    If you currently have a car on the Motability Scheme, you will not be able to collect your new car until on or after the end date of your current agreement.
