Personal Independence Payment


Unsuccessful PIP reassessment

If you are not awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP, you will no longer be eligible to lease a vehicle on the Motability Scheme and they will be in touch to help support you through this transition.

You will have around eight weeks from when your allowance payments end to return your car. Mobility will write to you giving you all the information you need, including details of our transitional support package. You may also be eligible for a pro-rata refund of any Advance Payment you made.

Please note that the transitional support package has been enhanced with effect from 20 April 2017 to allow customers further time to find suitable alternative mobility arrangements.

Transitional support package for Scheme customers

If the DWP informs Mobility that you’re not eligible for the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP following an unsuccessful DLA to PIP reassessment, they will write to you about returning your car.

For Scheme customers who joined before the end of 2013, there is a package of financial support available as long as you return the car to the dealership in good condition and by the agreed date. Here’s what to expect:

  • Up to £2,000 financial support dependent on when you first joined the Scheme and the date you return the vehicle (see below*).

  • No further lease payments.

  • Potential Advance Payment refunded on a pro-rata basis.

  • Where relevant, financial support to fit the same adaptations to a non-Scheme vehicle.

  • Copy of the 'Staying mobile after the Motability Scheme' guide which includes advice on buying a used car, information on insurance, maintenance and other mobility solutions.

  • Full claims history letter from RSA Motability and details for Autonet, an insurance broker who are able to provide insurance quotes where possible for customers leaving the Motability Scheme.

  • A fair market price for your car in case you choose to buy it.


This package will be reviewed regularly and changes may be made to it as a result.

*Financial support available:

For customers who joined the Scheme before 2013 and return the car within eight weeks**, £2000 will be available. Alternatively you can choose to keep the vehicle for 26 weeks**, however in this case you will receive a reduced payment of £500

For customers who joined the Scheme during 2013 and return the car within eight weeks** a transitional support payment of £1,000 will be available. Alternatively you can choose to keep the vehicle for 26 weeks** and receive a reduced payment of £250.

For customers who joined the Scheme since 1 January 2014, when more information on PIP became available, a standard £250 Return to Dealer payment will be available if the vehicle is returned within eight weeks**.

**All dates relate to the period starting from the day of the last DLA allowance payment.
