Am I Eligible for the Motability Scheme?

To benefit from a Motability car, you must be eligible to apply for the Scheme.

You must be receiving one of the following allowances:

  • The Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • The War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement
  • The Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • The Enhanced Rate for Mobility on the Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
Please note that DLA is gradually being phased out and replaced with PIP. Attendance Allowance is not eligible, nor are any other allowances and benefits which are not listed above. Remember that you need to have at least 12 months of remaining payments to qualify completely.


Your eligible allowance can be put towards a Motability car, powered wheelchair or scooter. Parents, carers and legal guardians for children between three and 16 can apply if the child is claiming the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the DLA.
