New to Motability

If you’re new to Motability, you’re in good company, as over 600,000 drivers currently enjoy the independence and benefits that the Scheme brings!

And here at Johnsons, we’re here to keep you moving safely and comfortably, and offer a wide selection of quality new cars that are available on the Motability Scheme, offering an affordable option to eligible customers or their carers. Our friendly team will help you find a car that meets all of your Motability requirements, and will give honest advice on the car best suited to you, and whether you might need any modifications.

We want to make sure you are getting everything that you need from your Motability vehicle, and offer a range of high-quality new models across a wide range of brands: Hyundai, Ford, Mazda, ŠKODA, SEAT, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Abarth, Volvo, Honda, Toyota and Volkswagen.

Motability in a nutshell


You must be in receipt of one of the eligible allowances or payments. You can also set up a nominee or an appointee to order or sort your car for you.

Choose your Car

There is a wide selection of cars on the scheme to suit a variety of needs. These may have an upfront cost, known as an "Advanced Payment" but there are many cars with no Advance Payment.

Paying for your car

You then have your car for 3 years (longer if you have adjustments made to your car). This is paid for straight out of the Mobility Component of your allowances or payments. It doesn't necessarily use your entire Mobility Component with some cars using as little as £62.50 per week.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following mobility allowances, and must have at least 12 months’ award length of your allowance remaining:

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

Please note: The Attendance Allowance cannot be used.

Depending on the circumstances either you can name someone else as a driver of your car, or a carer could be nominated or made an appointee to organise your motability car for you.

How it works

The Motability Scheme provides flexible and hassle-free access to a brand-new car – you simply exchange all, or part of, your mobility allowance to lease it. The payments, from £62.50 per week, are deducted from your higher rate mobility allowance every four weeks, then paid directly to the Scheme by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

The Scheme offers complete peace of mind, and takes care of running costs such as insurance, servicing, maintenance and breakdown cover. The standard lease is over three years, or five years if you are leasing a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.

This means everything is covered for your new car, right down to paying for it. The only thing you have to pay for is the fuel.
