Yes. Just like any other vehicle, regular servicing is required to keep your Motability car performing optimally. Your vehicle should be serviced in line with the manufacturer’s recommended time and/or mileage schedule – you can find this information in your owner’s handbook.
Your Motability vehicle will need an MOT test before you reach the end of your agreement as standard leases are over three years.
You must continue to get MOTs annually if you extend your lease after the initial three-year agreement.
To help you keep on top of things, your managing dealership will get in touch when it’s time for your MOT so you can book your vehicle in with us.
As part of your inclusive Motability package, servicing and MOT costs are all covered – this means you won’t have to worry about additional payments.
If your Motability vehicle doesn’t pass its MOT, it will need to be fixed and then re-tested.
The technician working on your vehicle will provide you with a report that documents the reason for the MOT failure, and the work required to address the fault(s).
The cost of any repairs caused by general wear and tear will be covered by your Motability agreement. For any larger, more substantial bits of damage, you may have to claim for the cost through your RSA Motability insurance.
If your Motability vehicle gets written off or stolen, RSA Motability will be on hand to help. They can help you organise a hire car, apply for a new Motability agreement, and sort out the previous contract on the vehicle which has been written off or stolen.
If you have been involved in an accident in your Motability car, you need to contact RSA Motability as soon as you can - even if you think the damage is minimal. The RSA Motability team will support you on what to do next.
If you are unsure what factors covered by your policy, you can check the insurance booklet for a detailed rundown.
