Citroen Motability Eligibility : Am I Eligible for the Motability Scheme?

The government-backed Motability Scheme is one of the most important initiatives for those with a disability in retaining their independence. The scheme, which has been running since the 1970s, enables eligible customers to exchange their applicable mobility allowance for the lease on a brand new car from some of the world’s leading manufacturers. Among those that support the scheme is Citroën, and we at Bentleys Citroën in Warrington are proud to be able to help you source the perfect model for you.

Couple Buying Motability car

In order to take advantage of the Motability Scheme, it’s important to ensure that you fully meet the eligibility criteria. Our team of Motability specialists will be able to help check your status when you visit our dealership; however, as long as you have at least 12 months’ award remaining on one of the following allowances, you should be eligible for the scheme:

  • 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)


What are the benefits of the Motability Scheme?

Not only does the Motability Scheme provide you with access to a brand new Citroën vehicle on a lease of three years, but you will also be able to take advantage of a number of added extras as standard. For example, there is roadside assistance and breakdown cover, comprehensive insurance, all road tax, and more available. Plus, should you have any specific adaptation requirements - perhaps in terms of access, driveability or storage - we will be able to arrange for any changes to be made for no additional charge.

The range of new Citroën models available through the Motability Scheme is extensive, meaning we’re confident that there’s something in the lineup to suit you. Whether you’re looking for an agile city runaround such as the Citroën C1, need something with a little extra space such as the C5 Aircross, or even a practical MPV like the Berlingo, we’ll be able to help you find the suitable option.
