What is the Motability Scheme?
Motability is a registered charity set up to help disabled people and their families to become more mobile. It was set up in 1977 to provide vehicles and powered wheelchairs to disabled people.
Special terms have been arranged with Proton as well as wheelchair and vehicle adaptation suppliers, banks and insurers so that a variety of schemes can be offered to enable disabled people to become more mobile.
Who is eligible?
To qualify for any of the Motability Schemes you must currently be in receipt of one of the following benefits:

Some vehicles require an advance payment. Please note advance payments are not refundable on termination of the agreement.
The advance payment and weekly rental you pay has a Price Guarantee for contract hire cars, this ensures that the price you agree on application is the one you pay when you collect your car.
The price guarantee stands however long it takes for your new car to be delivered. The only case where the price may alter is if the car description is changed subsequent to the original application.
