To lease a car from Motability, you must be receiving either:
Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) OR
War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
There is no upper age limit. As long as you receive one of the allowances, you are eligible for the Scheme. If you are a parent or guardian of a child aged three or over who receives the allowance, you can order a car for use on their behalf. The Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease cars, scooters or powered wheelchairs through Motability.
To lease a car through Motability you must have at least 12 months' award length remaining. Only the Higher Rate Mobility Component is used. Other parts of the DLA are not affected.
Adaptations are devices that can be fitted to a vehicle so that driving is safer and more comfortable, and getting in and out of the car is made easier.
There are a number of adaptations available, many for no extra cost, that could improve your motoring experience, including adaptations to help with :
Speed and steering
Signalling and safety
Seating and access
