Motability Eligibility

Am I eligible for the Motability Car Scheme?

If you, or the person you care for, receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) or the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement, then the answer is YES!

What is Personal Independence Payment (PIP)?

Disability Living Allowance is ending for people born after 8 April 1948, and are 16 or over, and being replaced by Personal Independence Payment (PIP). If you already have DLA for a mobility car the change to PIP may affect your Motability eligibility.


However, the Motability Scheme will continue to lease cars to disabled people who receive the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP, which has the same value as the Higher Rate Mobility Component of DLA.

How does PIP work?

If you are an existing DLA recipient who is awarded the Enhanced Rate, then your Motability lease will continue as you move from Disability Living Allowance to PIP. Another new mobility allowance, called the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP), is being introduced as well. If you receive this allowance, you could also be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.
