Can I extend my lease?

If you have a car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle)

In most cases you can extend the lease on your current car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.

The easiest way to ask for a lease extension is in the ‘Current lease' section in your Motability Scheme online account. You’ll see this if you're within the last three months of your lease, or already in a lease extension, and you have not already applied. 

If you've already extended your lease for two years or more and you want to keep your car for longer,  call our customer services team on 0300 456 4566.

You'll still need an MOT test if you extend your lease. You'll need to get this done within the last three months of your lease and before you hand your vehicle back or extend your lease.

We recommend you book your MOT in for at least one month before it's due, to allow time for anything to be fixed before your MOT expires.

You'll also need to book another MOT test every 12 months.

This means if your lease is extended for two years, you might need to get another two MOT tests before you hand your vehicle back.

The cost of your MOT test is included in your Scheme lease.

If you have a scooter or powered wheelchair

We’re usually only able to extend the lease on your scooter or powered wheelchair if you have less than 12 months left on your allowance when you’re ready to order your next product.

This is to give you time to speak to your allowance provider about renewing your allowance.

If you think you might need to extend your lease, please call us on 0300 456 4566 to talk about this.
