How It Works
With Motability you simply exchange your mobility allowance - either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disabilty Living Allowance (currently £55.25 a week) or the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (currently £61.75 a week) - for a brand new car.
Your allowance will go directly to Motability, in exchange for a car. Included with the car is a whole host of benefits, so the only thing you actually need to budget for is your fuel.
You don't even have to be able to drive yourself as you can nominate up to two other drivers or, equally if your child receives the allowance you can get a car on their behalf.
Most of Motability customers choose a three year lease agreement, although there is also a hire purchase option.
