Motability is a registered charity which provides mobility solutions for disabled people and their families in the UK. It was set up on the initiative of the Government in 1977, to provide vehicles and powered wheelchairs to disabled people.
Special terms have been arranged with Renault and Dacia, as well as other motor manufacturers, wheelchair and vehicle adaptation suppliers, banks and insurers, so that today a variety of schemes can be offered to enable disabled people to become more mobile.
Motability customers agree to pay all, or part of their Mobility Allowance (DLA or WPMS), depending on their choice of vehicle, for the duration of their contract hire agreement.
To lease a car from Motability, you must be receiving either:
Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
From April 2013, the Government is introducing a new allowance called Personal Independence Payment (PIP) which will gradually replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64. The Motability Scheme will work with PIP in the same way as is it does with DLA. For more information, go to dwp.gov.uk/pip. As of 10 April 2013, this allowance will be £55.25 per week.
Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
As part of the Welfare Reform Act 2012, a new allowance called Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) is being introduced. Those who receive this allowance will be eligible to join the Motability Scheme. For more information, visit the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency website. As of 10 April 2013, this allowance will be £55.25 per week, the same rate as HRMC and PIP.
Do you need to have a driving licence?
If you opt for our 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 five years, and they must live within 5 miles of the hirer. There are also some restrictions on drivers under 25 and those with provisional licences.
