Motability Explained

If you are new to the scheme, it can all seem a bit confusing, but really it is quite simple.

The Motability Car Scheme is designed to improve mobility and use of cars for people who are disabled or wheelchair users and their families.

With Motability you simply exchange your mobility allowance for a car that suits your requirements, through one of the options below:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component – £227.00 every four weeks (£56.75 p/w)
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of PIP – £227.00 every four weeks (£56.75 p/w)
  • War Pensioners Mobility Supplement – £253.60 every four weeks (£63.40 p/w)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (mobility element) – £227.00 every four weeks (£56.75 p/w)

Your allowance will go directly to Motability, in exchange for a car. Included with the car is a whole host of benefits like insurance, servicing, Road Tax. Dependent on the make / model of vehicle you choose, some vehicles attract a small advance payment, however at Rockingham Cars we offer many models with no advance payment.
