The Motability Scheme FAQ

What is Motability?

The Motability Scheme gives people easier access to a car by exchanging their mobility allowance to lease a new car. It is supported by world-renowned motoring brands such as Volkswagen.


How does Motability work?

Through the Motability Scheme you can exchange your mobility allowance to lease a new car for a standard three years, or if you a leasing a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle; five years. You can pick a vehicle at a price point that works for you, then payments are deducted from your higher rate mobility allowance every four weeks.

There’s no need to need to worry about breakdown cover, maintenance, servicing, tyre repair & replacement, windscreen repairs or insurance for up to three drivers. We take care of all the running costs mentioned. All you have to do, is fill the car with fuel and you’re good to go!

Over 600,000 eligible people enjoy the options and independence that the Motability Scheme brings, so why not join them? 

Wait, how does Motability work if I don't drive?

Don’t worry. Through the Motability Scheme you can nominate two named drivers to drive for you and you can still lease a vehicle from our new or used Motability car range through the scheme and nominate up to two named drivers to drive it for you. If you’re a parent or carer, you can also apply on behalf of a child.


How long does it take to get a Motability car?

The length of time it takes to get your Motability car will depend on the model you choose and if it needs to be adjusted for Wheelchair Accessibility.
