Your annual WAV check explained

The Motability Scheme provides an annual Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) check as part of your lease – this is carried out by your WAV supplier at your home. Watch our quick video below to learn what is checked during your WAV service and how the process works.


What your WAV check involves

The annual WAV check is carried out by your WAV supplier, as one of the many ways they support you during your lease. They will reach out to you to organise a convenient time for the annual check, and the process will take place at your home address.

During the WAV check, the supplier will make sure the conversion elements of your vehicle to make sure that they are working as they should – this could include the ramp or lift, winches or wheelchair tie-downs.

If the check shows that there are some repairs needed, your WAV supplier will try to do these at your home address, if possible. The cost of the annual WAV check and any routine repairs are included in the cost of your lease, so you can enjoy greater peace of mind.

Outside of the annual WAV check, please feel free to contact your supplier for any advice on the general maintenance or repairs of the conversion elements of your WAV.
