How Motability Works

Before you visit us, it’s worth ensuring you’re eligible to join Motability.

If you claim the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement, you’re eligible – it’s that simple. There are no checks, no assessments and absolutely no waiting lists.

And don’t worry if you don’t drive, you can nominate two drivers.

Simply exchange all or part of your allowance (currently around £46 a week for DLA or around £50 a week if you receive the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement) for your brand new car.

It’s so easy to join

Anyone who receives the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance, or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement, can transfer this allowance to pay for the monthly lease of a new car on the Motability Scheme.
