The Motability Scheme is a government-backed initiative that helps disabled people to get mobile by exchanging their mobility allowance to lease brand-new Motability cars. As a Motability dealer, all our dealerships are equipped with accredited Motability specialists who are there to help and answer any questions you might have about the Motability Scheme.
Motability is open to anyone who receives one of the eligible mobility allowances. Not sure if you qualify? Give us a call or send us a message online and one of our Motability experts will make contact to advise.
Please note, from the 13th of April 2023, you can now use your NVP (New Vehicle Payment) of £750 to offset the Advanced Payment on Motability vehicles.
