What is Motability?
What is the Motability Scheme?
The Motability scheme enables disabled people to use their government funded mobility allowance to lease a new car. The scheme was set up in 1978 and has helped over 3 million people get mobile with a brand new vehicle.
If you receive either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP), you can use that allowance to cover the monthly rentals of a MINI model of your choice over the next three years, with no additional costs. All you have to do is make an advance payment, which varies depending on the model.
When you join Motability you get more than just a car, you get all the support and help you need to enjoy worry-free motoring. Below are some of the benefits you will receive when you choose a car through the Motability Scheme.
- A brand new car every three years
- Insurance, servicing and maintenance
- Full breakdown assistance from the RAC
- Annual road tax paid for you
- Replacement tyres fitted by Kwik Fit
- Windscreen repair or replacement
- 60,000 mileage allowance over three years
- Many adaptations at no extra cost
- Two named drivers

3. Order Your Vehicle
Once you have decided which vehicle is right for you, your Motability specialist will complete your order with you using our simple online system.
