Motability has been offering services to disabled people for over 30 years, by exchanging their mobility allowance for a brand new car. Since its establishment in 1978, Motability has helped over 2 million people get mobile with a brand new car.
With Motability you simply exchange your mobility allowance – either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement – for a brand new car.
Included with the car is a whole host of benefits, so the only thing you actually need to budget for is your fuel. You don’t even have to be able to drive yourself as you can nominate up to two other drivers or, equally, if your child receives the allowance you can get a car on their behalf.
When selecting a Motability deal, you can purchase on a 3 year lease agreement.
What is included?
