Who is eligible for Motability?

If you receive any of the four higher rate mobility allowances from the British Government, and have at least 12 months’ award time remaining, you are eligible for Motability. The following are the higher rate mobility allowances you must receive to qualify.


·      The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)


·      The Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)


·      The Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)


·      The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)


When you are accepted onto the Motability scheme to get a Motability car or wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV), you will exchange your weekly mobility allowances with the Motability charity, who will in turn organise a lease deal for a car that you have chosen. If you choose to return the car at the end of the 3-year deal and not continue with the scheme, you can then reinstate your allowances. Learn more about how Motability works.
