TCH Ford Motability Scheme

What is the Motability Scheme?

About the Motability Scheme...

The Motability Scheme helps you become mobile by exchanging your higher rate mobility allowance to lease a new affordable car. This lease is all-inclusive with insurance, servicing, maintenance and breakdown cover included and payments are automatically taken from your mobility allowance. It is that easy.

Car Adaptations

To help you achieve the freedom and independence that mobility offers, the Motability scheme can fit adaptations to your car to help make driving or travelling easier. Typically, adaptations can help you drive, stow your wheelchair or scooter, or get in and out of the car. Many of these are available for no extra cost when fitted at the start of your lease.

Am I eligible for the Motability Scheme?

You could qualify for the Motability Scheme if you receive any of the following benefits:

• Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HMRC DLA)

• Enhanced Rate for Mobility on the Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

• War Pensioners Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

• Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

There's no upper age limit for the scheme, providing you receive one of the allowances listed above, but it is important to note that at the time you apply, you must have at least 12 months of benefits remaining. The Attendance Allowance is not a qualifying benefit. The Government has begun replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for all disabled people aged between 16 and 64.

If you are awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP, you will continue to be able to lease a car through the Motability Scheme, as you did previously.

But don't worry if you have at least 12 months of your current allowance remaining, then you still be able to choose your new vehicle during the PIP rollout.‚Äč

If you have any concerns about the PIP rollout please do not hesitate to contact one of our Motability Advisors, who will happily talk you through the ordering process.

Are you a Carer or Parent?

If you care for someone who is in receipt of a higher rate mobility allowance, you may not be aware of how the Motability scheme can assist you and the person you care for.

By supporting families, the Motability Scheme extends to both carers and parents. If you care for a child or someone who doesn’t drive there are three ways you can help: as a named driver, appointee or nominee.
