Freedom and Independence

Since it was set up on the initiative of the government in 1977, it has provided millions of people with affordable, trouble-free motoring through the provision of a new car. Motability’s car schemes currently provide freedom and independence to around 450,000 disabled people and their families across the UK.

The Scheme is directed and overseen by Motability, a national charity that also raises funds and provides financial help to customers who would otherwise be unable to join the Scheme.

Glenford has partnered Motability for a number of years and as a Premier Supplier has provided many disabled drivers with trouble free motoring. Motability vehicles make such a difference to people’s lives, not only allowing them to stay in touch but to remain independent also.


How the Motability Scheme works:

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to use their government funded mobility allowance to obtain a new car. The most popular option is Contract Hire on a 3 year lease. Full insurance, breakdown cover, servicing, tyre and windscreen replacement are all included in a single monthly payment.

Many cars are available simply by customers transferring their allowance to Motability for the period of the agreement. However on larger or more expensive models, an additional payment (known as an advance payment) may be required.


Who can apply?

The scheme is available to anyone who is receiving one of the following benefits, and has at least 12 months award length remaining when they apply:

Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance
War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement

A parent or carer can apply on behalf of a child aged three or older and non-drivers can apply for a car as a passenger. Once their application has been accepted, the customer pays all, or part, of their allowance to Motability for the duration of the contract hire or hire purchase agreement.
