Am I Eligible for the Motability Scheme?

At Bentleys Motor Group, we work hard to ensure that every stage of your Motability Scheme application is straightforward.

We employ dedicated Motability experts to help current and prospective Scheme users from the very start of the process and for as long as they remain a user.

Before test driving a Motability car and making your application, it is important to check that you are eligible.

Couple buying a Motability car

You may be eligible for the Motability Scheme if you currently receive one of the allowances listed below.

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioner's Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).

There is no upper age limit to becoming a Scheme user, and two other named drivers can be eligible to drive your Motability car.

You must also be due to receive at least 12 months’ more of these payments to be accepted.




Scheme eligibility restrictions

It is important to note that only the Enhanced Rate or Higher Rate of the Mobility allowance can be used to lease a car through the scheme. You cannot use the Attendance Allowance to fund your vehicle.
