The government-funded Motability Scheme has been
helping eligible motorists achieve greater independence for almost 40 years. It
is a fantastic charity that gives disabled people
the chance to take out a lease on a brand new car and improve their mobility, in exchange for
some or all of certain mobility benefits.
If you are in receipt of one of the following (providing you have 12 months’ award length remaining) then it is likely that you will be eligible for the scheme:
●Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
●Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
●War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
●Armed Forces Independence Payment
You will also be able to claim on behalf of your child if they are over the age of three and you can have up to two named drivers on the contract. With no upper age limit the scheme really is open to a wide range of people.
