Motability scheme

The motability scheme was established to give disabled people the opportunity to own or lease a car, wheelchair or scooter at an affordable price.

Am I eligible under the scheme?

You must be in receipt of the War Pensioners' Mobility supplement or the higher rate of the mobility component of the Disabled Living Allowance (DLA) for the Motability Scheme to help you with leasing or buying a car, wheelchair or scooter.

Over 1.5 million disabled people in the UK qualify for the higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance from the Government. What a disabled person chooses to do with that money is entirely up to them.

What can I use my allowance for?

Currently, 400,000 disabled people have chosen to have their allowances paid to the scheme to meet the cost of having a car, powered wheelchair or scooter through a contract hire or hire purchase arrangement.

Cars are supplied new from Motability accredited dealerships and customers can choose from over 20 car brands. There are more than 3,500 Motability accredited car dealerships across the UK and a national network of accredited retailers of powered wheelchairs and scooters. The Motability Scheme also provides a small number of used cars through hire purchase.
