Joining The Motability Scheme


Who can apply for Motability 

Am I eligible to join the Motability scheme?

To be eligible for the Motability scheme you must be receiving one of the following allowances:

  • Higher rate mobility part of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Higher rate mobility part of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • War Pensioners Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

You'll need at least 12 months remaining on your allowance when you apply. If you have less than that you will need to wait until your allowance provider renews your allowance.

Customers don't need to be able to drive- up to two carers or relatives can be named on the agreement, to help with attending appointments and getting about. If you receive one of the allowances above or you're a carer, parent or nominated driver then you can check on the Motability Eligibility Checker to find out if you're eligible to join the Motability scheme.
