Who Is Eligble
If you receive any of the following benefits and have at least 12 months' award remaining you can exchange some, or
all of this, to lease a scooter or powered wheelchair from Motability:
Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance
(Currently £56.75 a week) from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
(Currently £56.75 a week) from the Department for Works and Pensions (DWP)
War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement
(Currently £63.40 a week) from the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA)
Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

Parents can apply on behalf of a child aged 3 or over, who receives the allowance, but only the person
in receipt of the allowance can use the scooter or powered wheelchair. It cannot be used by anyone else, for
example your partner or spouse.
Please Note: The Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a product through the Motability Scheme.
We take care of everything
A lease means that we take care of the product throughout the agreement, so there are no unexpected costs to
you. Insurance, breakdown, servicing, battery and tyre replacement are all included in the price.
Payment is organised for you
Motability arrange for the relevant amount of your allowance to be paid directly to us every four weeks. And as
most products cost less than your weekly allowance, you will directly receive the remainder of your allowance
to spend however you choose.
All Motability ask in return is that you take good care of the product and that it is only used for your benefit
