To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you must receive one of these disability allowances:
And you will need to have at least 12 months remaining on your allowance when you apply.
If you are aged 65 and over, unfortunately the Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Motability Scheme.
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.
Just get in touch with Direct Line Motability; they 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 DLM 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll also need to inform the Department for Work and Pensions or Veterans UK.
If you need 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.
The Motability Scheme's leasing package includes:
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.
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.
No, standard rate PIP cannot be used to join the Motability Scheme, you must instead be in receipt of one of the following allowances with at least 12 months remaining on your allowance when you apply:
Yes, there is a choice of eco-friendly vehicles, including electric and hybrid cars and WAVs, available to lease on the Motability scheme. If you are considering an electric vehicle, you will need to have access to a charge point to recharge the battery and pay for the electricity that is used.
One of the great things about leasing an electric car through the Motability Scheme is that the home charge point is included at no extra cost for customers leasing their first pure battery electric vehicle.
To get a home charge point fitted, you must have off-road parking. If off-road parking is not available, you’ll be given access to a network of charging points for easy on-street charging.
Find out more about electric car charging on the Motability scheme.
If you’re eligible for the Motability car scheme, all you need to do is contact one of our Motability dealers and arrange an appointment with our Motability specialist who will help guide you through the process.
You can order your next Motability car three months before your lease expires, however, it’s a good idea to start thinking about your next vehicle a few months before this. At this stage, get in touch with your local Motability dealer and advise them of the make and model you’re interested in. They will then be able to give you more information and arrange a test-drive.
There are three pricing options to choose from when leasing your new Motability vehicle.
