Am I Eligible for the Motability Scheme?

Since not everyone can apply for the Motability Scheme, it’s important to know whether you are eligible. To make things simple, we at Booths of Ditton are pleased to provide an overview of the eligibility criteria.

The Motability Scheme enables people who receive one of the following disability benefits (and have at least 12 months’ award length remaining) the opportunity to have the use of a new car in a hassle-free and highly affordable way:

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

If you fall into any of these categories, care for someone who does, or are a nominated driver for an eligible person, you may be able to take full advantage of the Motability Scheme. All you have to do is decide on your advance payment - which can be nothing at all if you prefer (depending on the model you opt for) - and exchange part or all of your weekly allowance for your chosen vehicle.

At Booths of Ditton, we offer a wide range of new Peugeot cars which can be fully adapted to those who are eligible for the Motability Scheme. From compact runners to spacious, family-friendly alternatives, you can drive away in a vehicle that suits your requirements and your driving habits.

If you qualify for the scheme and are keen to purchase a new vehicle without delay, be sure to contact us today for more information. If you’re not sure whether you’re eligible and are a little confused by the paperwork – we’re happy to help. We’ve years of experience helping people to find a car that will make their daily life a lot easier and know the benefits of each of our vehicles inside out.
