Are You Eligible?
To qualify for the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following mobility allowances and you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining;
Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
- As of 12 April 2017, this allowance is £58.00 per week.
Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
- As of 10 April 2017, this allowance is £58.00 per week.
War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
- As of 12 April 2017, the mobility element of the allowance is £58.00 per week.
Please note that the Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Scheme.
What Should I Bring?
To get started, all you need is:
- Your driving licence and/or driving licences for any other named drivers
- Your letter of award entitlement
- Proof of address (such as a recent utility bill)
You will be asked to provide details of any previous accidents and/or driving convictions that you, or your named drivers, may have. This is submitted to Motability and they complete a few basic checks based on the information you supply.
We will thoroughly explain everything you need to know and how we can assist in managing the vehicles maintenance requirements over the 3 years.
We have carried out a range of adaptions on hundreds of vehicles including winches, ramps, extended pedals, one-handed steering and much much more. Please tell us what requirements you will need and we will be very happy to make the relevant enquiries.
Can I Part Exchange?
Of course! We offer competitive part exchange rates and have a wide variety of well-established buyers throughout the UK, allowing us to give you the best offer possible.
If you’d like to know how much your vehicle may be worth, give our Sales Team a call on 01275 332 857 and we will be happy to give you a quote over the phone, subject to inspection of the vehicle. Just give us your registration and current mileage!
What is an advance payment?
As vehicles get more expensive, your HRMC-DLA, PIP, AFIP or WPMS may not contribute enough towards the value of the vehicle and pricing that Ford and Motability have agreed. When this happens it may be necessary to pay an advance payment. This payment is non-refundable. However, there is a large amount of vehicles available with a nil advance payment which you can pick from the Ford range.
Can I add a younger driver to my policy under the Motability scheme?
Only one nominated driver under 21 is permitted. This can be you or another driver who lives at your address. Drivers under the age of 25 can only drive cars in the lower ABI insurance groups of 1 to 16 and with a brake horsepower rating of 115BHP or less.
Parking and reversing are getting more difficult for me because I can’t turn to look round.
With all Ford vehicles under the Motability scheme, parking sensors are required as standard, making parking easy peasy!
Do I need to make an appointment to test drive a car?
Feel free to come in and visit us anytime without an appointment. However, give us a call if you require additional information! Our friendly Sales Team can always tell you what stock we have available and get everything ready for when you arrive.
