The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to exchange their Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, their War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement, their enhanced rate mobility component of Personal Independence Payment or their Armed Forces Independent Payment to obtain a new car, powered wheelchair or scooter.
If you receive any of the benefits above then 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.
We sell the following brand new cars on the Motablility Scheme.
Nearly New Cars
We also have a limited stock of nearly new WAVs that are ex-mobility contract hire vehicles, under 3 years old, which are available on the Motablility 'Nearly New' scheme.
