What is the Motability Scheme?

The Motability Scheme offers affordable, worry free motoring through an all-inclusive leasing package to help disabled people, their families and carers regain their independence and become mobile!

With the Motability Scheme you simply exchange all or part of your mobility allowance to lease a brand-new car, and you'll enjoy the reassurance of a new car with none of the worries associated with buying and running an older one. Macklin Motors is proud to support the Motability Scheme in the UK, and can offer a wide choice of vehicles, award-winning service and vehicle adaptions if required.

How does the Motability Scheme work?

If you qualify for one of the below mobility allowances, you can exchange all or part of your allowance for a new car. You don't need to worry about managing the finances - payments are made directly from the Department of Work and Pensions to Motability.

Am I eligible for the Motability Scheme?

Don't worry - you don't have to undergo any medical assessments to join the Motability Scheme! If you receive one of the following mobility allowances, and have at least 12 months' award length remaining, you could be eligible!

  • Higher Rate Motability Component of the Disability Living Allowance

  • War Pensioner's Motability Supplement

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Child Disability Payment (CDP) (Scotland)

  • Enhanced Rate of the Motability Component of Personal Independence Payment

  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

You can also apply on behalf of a child aged three or older, as long as they are entitled to the Higher Mobility component of DLA. If you're not sure whether you're eligible to join the Motability Scheme, our friendly team is on hand to answer any questions.
