The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to exchange either their Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance or their War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement to obtain a new car, powered wheelchair or scooter.
If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement, getting a new car is easier and more affordable than ever. Through Motability, you simply turn part or all of that allowance into the car of your choice.
Adaptations if needed can be fitted to a vehicle so that driving is safer and more comfortable, and getting in and out of the car is made easier. There are a number of adaptations available, many for no extra cost, which could improve your motoring experience, including adaptations to help with:
If you think you may benefit from an adaptation in your new car, Motability’s Managed Adaptations Programmed offers a wide variety of options that could make your driving experience more comfortable. The Programmed takes away the hassle of organising adaptations by managing the process for you from start to finish. Motability may be able to offer financial help towards the cost of a suitable car, adaptations, driving lessons or a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
