The Motability Scooter Scheme – run by the independent not-for-profit organisation Motability gives you a worry free package mobility scooter to help keep you out and about.
How it Works
Through Motability, you simply turn part, or all, of your allowance into the scooter or powered wheelchair of your choice.
Parents can apply on behalf of a child who receives the allowance, but please be aware that some products may not be suitable for all ages.
Only the person in receipt of the allowance can use the scooter or powered wheelchair. It should not be used, for example, by your partner or spouse.
Who can use the scheme?
The Scheme is open to anyone who receives one of the following benefits, and has at least 12 months’ award length remaining when they apply:
- Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
- War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement.
What it includes
With Motability, you get more than just the scooter or powered wheelchair of your choice. The scheme is designed to be ‘worry free’ so you get extra help and support included free. Our current customers rate our service very highly and 95% of them would recommend Motability to a friend.
What’s included with your lease:
