What is motability?
The Motability scheme is a unique, all-inclusive, affordable way to lease a brand new car, specifically for the benefit of disabled people and their families. The scheme aims to provide worry-free mobility to people with a wide range of disabilities, covering most of your running costs, so you only need to worry about paying for your fuel.
You have a 60,000 mileage allowance over three years, at the end of which you can swap your car for a brand new one. The scheme has many more benefits, including insurance for two named drivers, servicing and maintenance, tyre and windscreen replacement, full RAC breakdown assistance and annual car tax. Also, many adaptations are charged at no extra cost, so you don’t have to worry about being able to afford necessary changes to the car.
Motability cars are split into the three price band options, allowing you to pick a vehicle that fits your budget the best:
- Cars that cost less than your weekly mobility allowance, so you keep the difference.
- Cars that cost exactly the same as your allowance.
- Cars that cost the same as your allowance, plus a one-off Advance Payment.
