Motability Scheme at Hodgson in Newcastle & Gateshead

At Hodgson, we are dedicated towards bringing high-quality vehicles to all of our customers. To aid with this, we are part of the nationwide Motability scheme, which brings vehicles to disabled people in order to grant them further freedom. Users of the Motability scheme are eligible for a new vehicle every three years, or every five years for a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. Many Suzuki, Toyota and Mazda vehicles are available under the Motability scheme, and we will find the best car that is suitable for you and your personal circumstances.

Are you eligible for Motability?

To be eligible for the Motability scheme, you must be currently receiving one of the following benefits:

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

Additionally, you must have a minimum of 12 months remaining on your benefit to be able to apply for Motability.

Adapting your Motability car

Motability enables disabled drivers to access a vehicle with a number of additional benefits: insurance and breakdown assistance are included, as are servicing, maintenance and repairs. Many vehicles can be fitted with adaptations to make them easier to use, such as hand controls, pedal modifications, and extra storage for vital equipment. Common adaptations are available at no cost under the Motability scheme, although advanced work may require a cost element.

We employ trained Motability specialists, who are available from our dealerships in Newcastle and Gateshead. Contact us today if you would like more information regarding the Motability scheme, and you can arrange a no-commitment appointment with us to discuss your options further.
