Eligibility

ELIGIBILITY

Who is eligible for the Motability Car Scheme?

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following mobility allowances and you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining. Please note that the Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Scheme.



  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
    As of 8 April 2020, this allowance is £62.25 per week.
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
    As of 06 April 2020, this allowance is £62.25 per week.
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
    As of 08 April 2020, this allowance is £69.50 per week.
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
    As of 08 April 2020, the mobility element of the allowance is £62.25 per week.

Can any other allowance be used with the Motability Scheme?

If you receive any of the following allowances and have at least 12 months award remaining, you can exchange all or part of the allowance to cover the cost of a lease agreement:
  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).

Only these allowances can be used through the Motability Scheme.​

How the change from DLA to PIP affects eligibility

If you or the person you care for is an existing Motability user, the change from the DLA to the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) may impact on eligibility for the scheme. However, Motability will still lease cars to disabled motorists receiving the enhanced-rate Mobility Component of PIP, as this has the same value as the higher rate DLA Mobility Component.

If you are a current DLA recipient who is awarded the enhanced rate, your Motability eligibility will be unaffected as you move from DLA to PIP. If you receive the new Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) allowance, you may also be eligible to benefit from the Motability Scheme.

To speak with our own Motability specialist, please contact us online, by phone or visit our dealership in person. For full details, please visit the Motability website.

I have less than 12 months' allowance - can I still apply for a Motability car?

According to the Scheme guidelines, you need to have at least 12 months remaining on your award to join the Motability Scheme. If you have less than 12 months remaining, you will not be able to place a new application until the Department for Work and Pensions extend or renew your allowance.
