The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to use their mobility allowances to lease a new car, scooter, or powered wheelchair without the worry of owning and running one.

The Scheme is open to those who receive

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA),
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS),
  • the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • or the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).
The Motability Scheme is operated by Motability Operations Limited under contract to Motability.


Family members or carers can drive the car on behalf of the disabled person covered with insurance for up to three named drivers. Servicing and breakdown assistance all included and car adaptations are also available.

Motability, the national charity, may be able to provide grants to disabled people towards the cost of a Scheme vehicle, adaptations, or driving lessons.
