The Motability Car Scheme19/10/2015
The Motability Car Scheme has helped over 4 million people get mobile by exchanging their motability allowance to lease a car. At Peter Vardy Edinburgh we can help you to understand how the scheme works, who is eligible and how vehicle adaptations could assist you further.
What is Motability?
Motability is a registered charity dedicated to helping disabled people and war pensioners obtain a new car through the Motability Car Scheme. On the BMW Motability Car Scheme you can benefit from a new BMW every three years, 20,000 mileage allowance per annum, insurance and road tax included, all servicing, maintenance, windscreen and tyre replacement costs included , accident and breakdown cover and the ability to nominate up to two drivers.
Who is eligible?
To lease a BMW through the Motability Car Scheme you must be receiving the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA), the Enhanced Rate of the Motability Compoment of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP), the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) and have at least 12 months award length remaining. What's more you don’t even need to drive. Family, friends or carers can drive on your behalf.
What does it cost?
BMWs on the Motability Car Scheme are supplied on contract hire or hire purchase agreements. Some of the vehicles on the scheme can be paid for entirely with the Allowance, but others require a cash deposit at the start of the agreement.
Can I make adaptations?
Features such as push button ignition, automatic transmission and height-adjustable driving positions can all help make travelling easier, and are available on almost all BMW models. However, if you require further adaptations fitted to your BMW you’ll be pleased to know that many of the most popular ones are now available at no additional cost when fitted at the start of your lease. Others will require payment as part of your Advanced Payment.
