What is the Motability Scheme?

The Motability Scheme is run by a charity and is an affordable way for people on the scheme to get mobile worry-free. The scheme enables people with disabilities to exchange part or all of their mobility allowance to lease a vehicle of your choice. 

At Swansway Group we have a great range of makes and models available on the Motability Scheme, so you can find exactly what you're looking for. Once you've chosen the vehicle you want you can choose which adaptations you need to help you drive, access or store mobility aids in your car. 

You can also name up to two drivers for your vehicle, so if your carer, a family member or a friend could drive your Motability car. Plus you get a brand new car every three years, so if your circumstances change or even if you just fancy something different, it's really easy.

How does the Motability Scheme Work?​

Finding a vehicle on the Motability Scheme couldn't be easier.

All you need to do is:

  1. Find the right vehicle for you from the latest Motability offers, it's also worth taking a look at the adaptations available that can help with accessibility.
  2. Make an appointment with your nearest dealership, all Swansway Group dealerships are Motability accredited and have trained Motability specialists ready to assist you.
  3. Place your order, our Motability Specialists will help you find the right car and fill out the paperwork, then we'll send an application to Motability. As soon as it's approved we'll order your new car and be in touch to arrange a handover date.

Your Motability lease will last for 3 years, so at the end of the lease simply drop the car back off at the dealership you picked it up from and arrange for a new one to be ordered.

Next Steps

Choosing your vehicle

When choosing a new motability vehicle, there is a lot to consider, including cost, suitability and fuel consumption. To make it easier to find a vehicle that best meets your needs, we’ve outlined a few key areas that may help you decide:

Financial help for car customers

If you need a specific car or adaptations to help you get mobile and you are unable to afford the Advance Payment required, or if you need essential adaptations or a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV), which can sometimes cost more, Motability may be able to provide financial help.

Financial help
is only awarded towards the least expensive solution that meets your mobility needs and you should also expect to contribute as much as you can afford.

Find your nearest dealer

Once you’ve worked out what’s important to you in a vehicle, the next step is to visit one of our dealers. 

You can discuss your preferred options with a fully trained Motability specialist and arrange a test drive.

Find your nearest Motability Centre

Order your vehicle

Once you have ordered the right vehicle for you, your Motability specialist will complete your order with you using our simple online system. Motability will then send you an acceptance letter containing your Personal Identification Number (keep this safe as you need it to collect your vehicle).
