The Motability Scheme allows you to exchange some, or all of your higher rate mobility allowance for a scooter, power wheelchair, car or wheelchair assisted vehicle.

To find out more, please visit Motability Scheme’s website.


To be eligible for the scheme, you need to be in receipt of one of these benefits:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

Your lease will be paid directly by the DWP, saving you any time and stress with bills or payments. Your lease lasts for three years, at which point, when you return your scooter or wheelchair and (provided you decide to renew) receive a brand new one to replace it.


Scooter lease starts from £12.50 a week and includes:

  • Servicing
  • Maintenance
  • Insurance
  • Tyre and battery replacement
  • Breakdown assistance
