Did you know that the Motability Scheme offers more than just cars? There are a range of mobility options available through the Scheme. These include cars with named drivers, cars with adaptations, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) and scooters and powered wheelchairs.
Our new product selection tool helps you find out which of our range of vehicles might be suitable for your needs. All you need to do is answer three simple questions to find out about the options available. Whether you’d prefer a car, WAV, scooter or powered wheelchair; the Motability Scheme aims to help you make the most of your mobility.
About the Motability Scheme
The Motability Scheme helps you to get mobile by exchanging your mobility allowance to lease a new car, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, scooter or powered wheelchair.
All our mobility options come with the same worry-free, all-inclusive package. Our standard lease is over three years, or five years if you are leasing a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle and we take care of running costs such as insurance for up to three named drivers (this doesn’t have to be you), servicing, maintenance, breakdown cover and tyre and windscreen repair and replacement. All you need to do is add fuel and go.
If you’d like to find out more about the Scheme, request an information pack below and we’ll send you all the information that you need to make the right choice.
There are various makes, models and types of cars available to lease through the Motability Scheme, from fuel efficient smaller vehicles to roomy estates. We know that choosing a car is a big decision, so we’re here to help you make the right choice for your needs and budget.

Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles
Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) are vehicles that are specially converted so a wheelchair user can travel either as a passenger or a driver.

Cars with adaptations
If you are able to transfer out of a wheelchair without too much trouble or discomfort, you may find that a standard car fitted with adaptations suits you better than a WAV. You can choose from over 500 adaptations which are designed to make your driving or travelling experience as comfortable as possible.

Scooters and powered wheelchairs
A mobility scooter is probably the right choice for you if you can travel relatively independently, get on and off the scooter on your own, and are able to use a bicycle-style steering column or tiller.
A powered wheelchair, rather than a scooter, may be a more suitable product for you if you need to stay in your wheelchair throughout the day, have restricted mobility in one or both hands, require mobility assistance around the home or are unable to transfer on and off a seat easily.
