The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car, using their Government funded mobility allowance. If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.
If you choose a car, all this is included:
A new car of your choice every three years
You get a brand new car every three years.
The worry-free package provides similar cover to what you would expect under a fully comprehensive insurance. You can still lease a car even if you don’t drive, you simply nominate two drivers who can drive on your behalf. And if you decide to leave Motability at a later stage, you can request a letter confirming your claims history to take to your new insurer.
Servicing and maintenance
All of your regular servicing and maintenance is included and taken care of by your dealer. So you’ll have no unexpected repair bills with your Motability car.
Full breakdown assistance from RAC
The RAC Motability Assist helpline and roadside staff are specially trained to handle your calls and are available on 0800 73 111 73, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Assistance is provided for recovery, either at the roadside or at home.
Annual car tax
When you take delivery of your car, it will already be taxed for the first year. If you live in Great Britain or Northern Ireland, we will arrange for your car to be taxed each year throughout your lease (unless you have chosen to pay tax privately).
Replacement tyres fitted by Kwik Fit
For no extra cost we kwikfit will replace worn or damaged by normal use. They also provide a mobile service so your tyres can be replaced for no extra cost at your home or work.
Window and windscreen repair or replacement
Should anything happen to your windows or windscreen, repair and replacement are included in the lease.
60,000 mileage allowance over three years
You get 60,000 mileage allowance over three years with cars. However, if the total mileage is higher than the allowance when you return the car, there is a charge of 5p for every additional mile.
Many adaptations at no extra cost
If you need adaptations to make your car easier, safer or simply more comfortable to use, you’ll be pleased to know that many of the most popular ones are now available at no additional cost.
Although almost everything is included, please note you will be responsible for paying the following:
As well as all the benefits on offer as part of our worry-free package, you’ll need to make sure you’re happy to lease a car within the Scheme’s terms and conditions.
