About the Motability Scheme

The Motability Scheme is about providing flexible, convenient transport.  Use your mobility allowance to lease a car, scooter, powered wheelchair or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle – giving you greater freedom, everyday.

How does the scheme work?

The Motability Scheme is designed to be straight-forward and stress-free. You simply lease the vehicle, paying for it out of your mobility allowance.


Choose your vehicle

Find the right car, scooter, powered wheelchair or wheelchair accessible vehicle for you.


Setup through your local dealer

Your local dealer will do almost all the work for you, taking you through the setup process once you've chosen your vehicle.


Payments are deducted automatically

Payments are deducted directly from your mobility allowance every four weeks so you never need to worry about it.
