At Lloyd Motor Group we are delighted to be able to assist with meeting the needs of drivers eligible for Motability. All our dealerships are members of the Motability Scheme and all our staff are able to discuss your specific requirements and help you drive the car of your choice.
What is Motability?
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
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 adaptions to help improve your driving experience:
- Driving adaptions, including pedal modifications and electric controls.
- Stowage adaptions, which include rooftop stowage and car boot hoists.
- Access adaptions to help you get in and out of your car, including swivel seats and electric hoists.
