Eligibility


The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to get mobile by exchanging their mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair. The Eligibility Checker tool and the information below will help you to find out if you may be eligible to apply to join the Scheme.

 

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following mobility allowances and you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining. Please note that the Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Scheme.

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
    This allowance is provided by the Government and can be used to cover the cost of a lease agreement with Motability Operations Ltd. As of 12 April 2017, this allowance is £58.00 per week. To lease a car through the Motability Scheme, you must have at least 12 months’ award length of the HRMC DLA remaining.

  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
    As part of its welfare reform programme, the Government has started to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with a new benefit called Personal Independence payment (PIP) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64. The Motability Scheme works with PIP in the same way as is it does with DLA. As of 10 April 2017, this allowance is £58.00 per week.

  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
    This allowance is provided by Veterans UK and can be used to cover the cost of a lease agreement with Motability Operations Ltd. As of 12 April 2017, this allowance is £64.80 per week.

  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
    A new allowance called Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) was introduced as part of the Welfare Reform Act 2012. Those who receive this allowance will be eligible to join the Motability Scheme. As of 12 April 2017, this allowance is £58.00 per week (this refers to the mobility element, which is the same rate as HRMC DLA and ERMC PIP).


  • The Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Motability Scheme.
