Why Motability

What is Motability?

Since 1977, the Motability charity has been working in partnership with manufacturers to provide the Motability Scheme, a nationwide initiative that gives disabled motorists easier access to a car through a lease arrangement.

The scheme is government approved and funded, and supported by many world-renowned motoring brands including BMW, Volkswagen, and SEAT, to name just a few. The Agnew Group are proud to support the Motability scheme in Northern Ireland, and can offer a range of 9 Manufacturers to choose from.

Eligibility

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following disability benefits and you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining. Please note that the Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Scheme.

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioner's Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

If your benefit is not renewed during the lease period on your chosen model, then you will have to return it when your allowance ends. It's also possible to apply on the behalf of a child aged three or older, as long as they are entitled to the Higher Mobility component of the DLA. There are no medical assessments for the scheme, and you can choose a vehicle straight away without being placed on a waiting list.

All vehicles are provided fully taxed and insured, and every manufacturer and dealer will offer you a reassuringly high level of cover.

How it works

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car by exchanging their Government funded mobility allowance. If you receive either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) , the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.

When choosing a new vehicle, there is a lot to consider, including cost, suitability and fuel consumption. To make it easier to find a vehicle that meets your needs, please speak to any of our trained specialists who will ‘best match’ your specific requirements to the new car you deserve.

2. Search for the right Manufacturer

Once you’ve worked out what’s important to you in a vehicle, the next step is to visit a dealer...

There is a lot of demand for financial help and they try to ensure that the available money is used to help as many people as possible to become or remain mobile.

What can Motability give financial help towards?

  • Advance Payments on standard production cars. This is the one-off upfront payment on a car
