You can choose up to two named drivers as part of your lease, including yourself, friends, family or carers. Plus, for an additional cost, you can also add a third driver.
For the protection of the scheme, there are a few rules concerning who can drive your Motability car:
Only those named as permitted drivers on your Certificate of Motor Insurance will be covered to drive your Motability car. Before choosing your car it is important to consider whether you will require a named driver under 25 years of age. For more information regarding suitable options for your needs, please speak with one of our Motability specialists at Johnsons.
When you place the order for your next car, you will need to tell your Motability Specialist about anyone you wish to drive the car, including yourself. You’ll also need to provide confirmation that these drivers agree to obey the Scheme guidelines and are happy for us to check their details against the DVLA driver licence database.
Proposed drivers can give their consent by either coming with you to the Johnsons dealership when you place your order, or filling out the Driver Consent Form, which will be sent to you three months before the end of your lease along with your renewal pack. If you wish to add or change a driver during your lease, please contact your local Johnsons dealership.
If you require a temporary driver, you can add one to your lease at no extra charge (unless they are the third driver on the lease). A temporary driver can be added onto your policy for up to 30 days at a time and must always conform to the Scheme rules and use the car for your benefit. If you rely on this driver multiple times throughout the year, they must be included on your Certificate of Motor Insurance as a permanent driver.
If a named driver is convicted of a motoring offence during
the agreement, you must tell us immediately to make sure you are still covered.
Furthermore, you should let the DVLA know about any change in you or your
driver’s mobility or health which might make driving unsafe. But if your GP has
passed you to drive and the DVLA are aware of these changes you do not need to
