Motability Scheme eligibility

If you receive a higher-rate mobility allowance from the government, you can use some or all of that money to lease a new vehicle. Eligible examples include:

  • The Enhanced Rate of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP)’s Mobility Component;
  • The Higher Rate of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)’s Mobility Component;
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement;
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment.
  • Eligible recipients can part or wholly-fund a new vehicle lease using their disability benefits.

    The way that the Motability Scheme works is simple. Firstly, you must choose a vehicle that meets your needs and fits within your price range. Next, the Motability Scheme dealer checks that you meet the eligibility criteria for the scheme.

    If you receive the previously-mentioned benefits payments, you should also have 12 or more months remaining on your allowance.

    Finally, assuming that you meet the eligibility criteria, your enhanced or higher rate mobility component benefits payments get paid directly to the Motability Scheme. Those payments will partly or wholly cover the cost of your new car or wheelchair-accessible vehicle (WAV).


    Why does the Motability Scheme make sense?

    The Motability Scheme differs from ordinary vehicle leasing in a few ways. First of all, you could technically lease a vehicle without having to pay a penny towards the lease costs. That’s because your eligible mobility benefits from the DWP get used as payment.

    Secondly, a Motability Scheme lease covers all your motoring costs (excluding fuel). When you lease a vehicle under the Motability Scheme, it will pay for insurance and can cover up to three people, including yourself.

    That means you don’t even need to be a motorist to lease a vehicle through the Motability Scheme. Technically, you could have a spouse, partner, family member, friend or anyone that cares for you drive the vehicle that you lease.

    Also included is servicing and maintenance costs, windscreen repairs and replacement, and even tyre repairs. Motability Scheme leases also include breakdown cover for added peace of mind when you’re out on the road.

    As mentioned, the only cost that isn’t covered is fuel. Still, today’s modern fuel-efficient vehicles mean you won’t spend much money putting petrol or diesel in your new vehicle!

    If you compare the Motability Scheme to a standard vehicle lease, you’ll find that virtually all those ‘extras’ aren’t covered as standard. That means you’d have to pay additional monthly fees, and it’ll likely cost more compared to Motability deals from dealers like Swansway.
