How much it costs

Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles cost more than other vehicles because suppliers need to convert them to make them accessible and safe. You’ll need to pay an Advance Payment at the start too – this is to cover the difference between your allowance payments and the lease costs.

Have a question?

Can someone else drive for me?

Our worry-free package includes insurance for up to three named drivers – these can be yourself, friends, family or carers. You can add two drivers when you place your order and a third driver after you have collected the vehicle - you just need to wait at least 24 hours after the handover to do so. You can easily view, add or change named drivers during your lease in the 'Insurance cover' section of your Motability Scheme online account, saving you a call to RSA Motability (RSAM).

All proposed drivers are subject to the Scheme's policies on who can drive your car and must also meet RSAM's eligibility criteria regardless of whether they are added at application or during your lease. Only drivers listed as permitted drivers on the Certificate of Motor Insurance are insured to drive your Motability Scheme car.

Remember, the car must be used by, or for the benefit of, the disabled person. This does not mean that the disabled person needs to be in the car for every journey. In practice, this means other named drivers in the household can use the car for shopping and other routine activities, as long as the disabled person will benefit.

Can I apply for financial help?

If you are unable to afford the right mobility solution to meet your needs, Motability, the Charity, may be able to provide financial help. This help includes grants towards Advance Payments for cars, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles), driving lessons and adaptations.

To make the best use of their charitable funds, Motability award grants which are cost effective solutions based upon the individual disabled person’s mobility needs and not wants.

All grant applications are means-tested to ensure Motability supports those most in need of a charitable grant and to ensure they helps as many beneficiaries as possible with the charitable funds available.

Please note: Motability are not able to award a grant if you have already ordered your vehicle. This is because when you place an application for a grant, your Case Manager will consider your individual circumstances and confirm which vehicles the charity is prepared to fund based on your mobility needs, not wants.

Grants are awarded in line with Motability’s policies and following thorough consideration of the information submitted in the application. All grant awards are final, except in cases where additional compelling information is provided. Applications that Motability considers do not meet their funding priorities will not receive grant funding.

Find more information about financial support on the Motability (charity) website.

Do I have to be in the car when it is being used?

The car must be used by, or for the benefit of, the disabled person. This does not mean that the disabled person needs to be in the car for every journey. In practice, this means that other named drivers in the same household can use the car for shopping, visiting family and other routine activities, so long as the disabled customer will benefit.

Do not forget that only drivers listed under the permitted drivers section of your Certificate of Motor Insurance are covered to drive your Motability car.
