How much does it cost on my allowance?

Depending on the car, it will cost either all or part of your mobility allowance. If you wish to upgrade to a more expensive model that costs more than your allowance, you will need to cover that cost in the form of an advance payment.

Can I join the scheme if I'm over 65?

Yes, if you receive the HRMC (Higher Rate Mobility Component) of the DLA (Disability Living Allowance), or the WPMS (War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement), and have 12 months or more remaining on your allowance, then you are eligible to join the scheme.

How can I adapt my car?

There are a number of adaptations to help improve your driving experience:

  • Driving adaptations, including pedal modifications and electric controls.

  • Stowage adaptations, which include rooftop stowage and car boot hoists.

  • Access adaptations to help you get in and out of your car, including swivel seats and electric hoists.
