If you opt for our lease agreement you do not need to drive. You can nominate up to two drivers who may be friends or relatives, and parents or carers can apply on behalf of a child aged three years and upwards. However, proposed drivers must not have any serious driving convictions, disqualifications, or endorsements within the last five years.
Only one named driver can be under the age of 21, and drivers under the age of 25 can only drive cars in the lower insurance groups of one to 18. Our Motability Specialists are happy to help with any questions you may have. Call us today to find out more.
Could you be entitled to PIP? Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is a benefit that helps with the extra costs of a long-term health condition or disability for people aged 16 to 64. PIP is a non-means tested benefit and is not affected by earnings, other income or savings.
As part of its welfare reform programme, the Government is replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with a Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
The Motability Scheme works with PIP in the same way as it does with DLA. If you are newly awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP and have at least 12 months remaining on your award, you will be able to lease a car, scooter or powered wheelchair through the Motability Scheme. For PIP rates and how to make a claim please see here. Or if you would like to know more information regarding PIP and the Motability scheme please contact one of the team today by clicking the button below.
On the Motability scheme you can have up to two named drivers insured for FREE as part of your lease; whether it’s yourself, friends, family or carers. There’s also the option to add a third driver for an additional cost.
