Who can enjoy a Motability car?
Motability provides a unique leasing package designed for the benefit of disabled people. Provided you,or your child, recieve either Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA), the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP) , the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) and have at least 12 months remaining on your award, you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.
One of the common misconceptions regarding eligibility for the Scheme is that there is an upper age limit - this is not the case. In fact a third of our customers are aged over 65. As long as you already receive one of the relevant allowances , you are eligible for the Scheme.
The confusion happens as the DWP does have an upper age limit of 64 for people who would like to apply for disability related benefits for the very first time. If you are applying for disability related benefits for the first time and are aged 65 or over, the DWP will ask you to register a claim for Attendance Allowance, which you are not able to use to join the Scheme.
You simple exchange your allowance to lease the car of your choice. Everything except fuel is included at no extra cost. And after three years, if you decide to stay with the Motability scheme, you simply choose another brand new car.
Your worry-free package
We want you to enjoy your car without having to worry, so all this is included with your lease:
- Insurance, servicing and maintenance
- Full RAC breakdown assistance

Choosing the right car for you
With a selection of many vehicles to choose from, there's bound to be one that suits both your needs and budget. There's many cars that cost no more than your weekly allowance, or you can increase your choice even further by topping up your allowance with an upfront 'Advance Payment'.
