Motability - How it works

Designed to bring independence and mobility to disabled motorists, the Motability scheme is a national initiative that has been funded by the government. Since 1978, the Motability scheme has allowed drivers of reduced mobility access to up-to-the-minute vehicles which can be specifically adapted in order to meet individual needs and requirements.

Motability is available to disabled people who are currently receiving the following benefits:

  • The Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA);
  • The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP);
  • The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS); or
  • The Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

Through the exchange of the government-funded mobility allowance, drivers have the potential to be eligible for a Motability car every three years, or a new Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) every five years.

Additionally, you will be able to test drive vehicles before you make a decision, to ensure that the car you choose is the ideal one for you. Other benefits of the scheme include the ability to nominate two named drivers with full insurance, servicing and maintenance, and a range of adaptations that are either free or at a reduced cost.
