Who can join?

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to get mobile by exchanging their mobility allowance to lease a new car. The Eligibility Checker tool and the information on the Motability site will help you to find out if you may be eligible to apply to join the Scheme. Up to 3 named drivers can be included as part of your lease.


To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following mobility allowances 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.
