What is Motability?
Motability is an independent company that helps people with disabilities obtain an affordable, worry-free new car through the Motability Scheme.
The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair, using their Government funded mobility allowance. If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP), the War Pensioners Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.
Am I Eligible?
If you or your child receives one of the following allowances and has at least 12 months remaining on the award, you are eligible to lease a car from Motability:
- Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance
- Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
- War Pensioners Mobility Supplement
- Armed Forces Independence Payment
You can check you eligibility by clicking HERE.
What is included in the Motability Scheme?
Apart from fuel, everything else you need is provided as part of the leasing package:
- You’ll be fully insured
- If you choose to lease a car or WAV, you can name two drivers on your insurance so you can still enjoy worry-free motoring even if you don’t drive
- Full breakdown assistance is included
- All servicing, maintenance and repairs are covered, so there are no unexpected repair bills
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.

My wife bought a brilliant 5 door MINI Hatch with JCW Pack and Apple CarPlay etc part of a promotion last month. I’ve bought loads of cars from loads of dealers and garages over the years but Lloyd’s and in particular our sales guy, Glenn, stand out as an absolute pleasure to deal with. Found them no pressure at all, straight forward talking and above all offering a very good deal. Cool showroom too (with good coffee) and plenty of time to make your mind up. You know your being looked after when a car dealer offers to buy you a toastie! Would definitely recommend Lloyd and if you are allergic to your typical cliched car salesmen go see them and Glenn. Good job all round.
