You can read more FAQs about the impact of COVID-19 on Motability renewals here.

How do I update my nominated drivers?

Just get in touch with RSA Motability, who can help you change the drivers named on your insurance. Bear in mind that all drivers will be subject to Motability policies on who can drive your car. And regardless of whether you add them when you first apply or during your lease, they must meet RSAM eligibility criteria. Please remember that only those drivers you have listed under the ‘permitted drivers’ section of your Certificate of Motor Insurance will be covered to drive your Motability vehicle.

How do I update my personal details if they change?

If you move house or change any of your contact details, please let Motability know as soon as possible to prevent any delays. Please bear in mind only Motability customers or their nominees can provide updates. If your vehicle or personal details have changed, please contact Arnold Clark on 0141 648 1088, or email customerchanges@arnoldclark.com. You’ll also need to inform the Department for Work and Pensions or Veterans UK.

What is Personal Independence Payment?

Personal Independence Payment, or PIP, was introduced in 2013 as a replacement for Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64. You can find out how PIP affects your eligibility for the Motability Scheme here.

How do you cancel a Motability car lease?

If you have a valid reason to end your agreement early, you can call the Motability Customer Services team on 0300 456 4566 and they’ll review your circumstances. There is a £250 administration fee from Motability to cover their costs, and you will waive your right to a Good Condition bonus. Once you’ve returned the vehicle, your Advance Payment may be refunded to you on a pro-rata basis. However, if you cancel more than three times in a seven-year period, your eligibility may be affected.

How often does my Motability car need to be serviced?

You should follow your manufacturer recommendations for having your Motability vehicle serviced. It will depend on what sort of vehicle you have, how long you’ve had it and its mileage. You should have received a manual and service book with your car, which we’d recommend you refer to (most people keep this in their glovebox). If you have any questions, please get in touch with our Servicing and Repairs team.

What happens at the end of my Motability agreement?

You can:

  • Select another car to lease via the Motability scheme for three years
  • Find out if you can keep your current car for longer
  • Return your Motability vehicle and have your full allowance reinstated.

It’s a good idea to plan your next lease vehicle a few months before the end of the agreement. Motability will send you their guide to leasing your next car and their Car Price Guide, then you can contact Arnold Clark and speak to one of our Motability specialists.
