Benefits of the Motability Scheme


Motability Scheme ensures that vehicles such as mobility scooters, cars and powered wheelchairs, designed for individuals with mobility issues, are available to them at affordable costs. Under this scheme, individuals can hire a mobility vehicle on lease on the basis of their mobility allowance.

The Motability Scheme is monitored and revised by Motability, a registered Charity. The aim of the Charity is to provide users with a reliable mobility solution.

Eligibility for Motability Scheme

The following allowances are eligible for the Scheme provided the allowance remains valid for a period of 12 or more months:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

How the Scheme Benefits You

This Scheme takes care of all services related to your mobility vehicle, including periodic maintenance, insurance, and breakdown repair. Several dealerships offer this Scheme. You can choose a service provider, select your mobility vehicle and test drive it.

If the vehicle suits your requirements, the dealer will complete required formalities and finalise the Scheme for you.
