Am I Eligible for Motability?

Am I Eligible for Motability

The Motability Scheme is the UK’s leading car scheme for disabled people, enabling those who receive a government-funded Mobility Allowance to become independently mobile and enjoy life out on the roads. 

Am I eligible for a Motability car?

To be eligible for Motability, you must be a recipient of one of the following allowances:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioner's Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

Please note: You will need to have at least 12 months certificate remaining on your Mobility Allowance when you apply for Motability, and other Terms & Conditions will apply.

Who Can Drive Motability Vehicles?

If you, the person who receives the Mobility Allowance, are not able to drive you can still use Motability to help become mobile by nominating up to two named drivers. That can be friends, relatives or carers and they can use the Motability car on your behalf. Similarly, if you’re the parents of a child who qualifies for Motability you are entitled to use their mobility allowance to lease a Motability car suited to their needs. 

What Age Must Your Child Be to Qualify for Motability?

The Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) can be awarded once your child is three years old.

If a child under three has had the DLA allowance confirmed, an application for Motability can be made up to three months before their third birthday, but the lease agreement will not start until the allowance is awarded.
If a child above the age of three has been awarded the Mobility Allowance an application can be made to the Motability Scheme. The application will need to be submitted in the name of the appointee (parent or guardian) who is responsible for the allowance.
