If you are unable to afford the right mobility solution to meet your needs Motability, the charity, may be able to provide financial help. This help includes grants towards Advance Payments for cars, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs), driving lessons and adaptations.
No, as you are on a leasing scheme, ownership of the vehicle remains with Motability Operations. At the end of your agreement you will have three options:
Simply get in touch with your local Brindley dealership and one of our Motability specialists will run through your requirements and arrange everything you need for your test drive.
Lead times vary depending on make and model. When placing your order, we’ll be able to advise how many weeks you’ll have to wait before receiving your car. This can be longer if you’re getting any adaptations.
If you're eligible for the Scheme, simply get in touch with your local Brindley dealership and arrange an appointment with one of our Motability specialists who can guide you through the process.
Lots of our motability customers don't drive. That's why the insurance with your lease is for up to three named drivers, so your car could be driven by a family member, friend or carer.
PIP is the new allowance which is gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for disabled people aged between 16 and State Pension age.
Like DLA, PIP has two components: a daily living component and a mobility component. Each component has two rates of payment: a ‘standard rate’ and an ‘enhanced rate’ which will be the same amount as the DLA. You can lease a Motability Scheme car, scooter or powered wheelchair by using the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP, similar to the Higher Rate Mobility Component of DLA.
The Government started to replace DLA with PIP in April 2013 and in Northern Ireland in June 2016. It is expected to be completed by 2021. If you receive DLA, you will be invited to make a claim for PIP by the DWP (or the Department for Communities in Northern Ireland) at some point between now and 2021. Until that point, you do not need to do anything. However, when you receive the letter, it is important to respond to the invitation within the given timescales.
The Motability Scheme's leasing package includes:
The Motability Scheme offers around 500 different adaptations, many of which are available for no extra cost when fitted at the start of your lease. So, if you require adaptations to help make driving, or travelling, easier or more comfortable, simply select the adaptions you require and order them at the same time you order your new car.
