The Motability Scheme is designed to help disabled drivers and their families become more mobile and as we have experienced Motability specialists at our dealership we can help our customers find the perfect Motability car and make any adaptions necessary for them to make their driving more comfortable and as hassle free as possible.
To find out anymore information on how the motability scheme works, how you go about choosing the correct car and the purchase options available to you please read the following information below.
How The Scheme Works?
Its easy to buy a car through Motability simply choose the car and we will do the rest. If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement, getting a new car is easier and more affordable than ever. Simply turn part or all of that allowance into the car of your choice.
There are no waiting lists, credit checks or assessments required and with all new motability finance vehicles you recieve the following:
- Insurance, servicing and maintenance covered for three years.
- Full RAC breakdown assistance.
- Annual tax disc.
- Tyre and windscreen replacement.
- 60,000 mileage allowance over 3 years.
- Many adaptations at no extra cost.
- You don’t even have to drive – you can nominate up to two other drivers and pay a little extra for a third
Am I eligible for a Motability car?
To lease a car from Motability, you must be receiving either:
Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) – currently £54.04 per week – or War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) – currently £60.40 per week.
If you choose to lease a car through Motability’s Contract Hire scheme you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining. For customers choosing to buy a car with a Hire Purchase agreement, you will need to be receiving the allowance for the full length of your agreement.
Do I need to have a driving licence?
If you opt for a lease agreement you do not need to drive. You can nominate up to two drivers who may be friends or relatives, and parents or carers can apply on behalf of a child aged three years and upwards.
However, proposed drivers must not have any serious driving convictions, disqualifications, or endorsements within the last 5 years. There are also some restrictions on drivers under 25 and those with provisional licenses.
Adaptations are devices that can be fitted to a vehicle so that driving is safer and more comfortable, and getting in and out of the car is made easier. There are a number of adaptations available, many for no extra cost, that could improve your motoring experience, including adaptations to help with:
- Speed and steering
- Signaling and safety
- Seating and access
If you think you may benefit from an adaptation in your new car, simply speak to your our Motability Specialists Brian or Martin Today, who will only be too happy to explain the options available and can manage the process for you from start to finish.
