What is the Motability Scheme?

At Vertu Motors we are proud to support the Motability Scheme which offers affordable, worry-free motoring to help disabled people, their families, and carers become mobile.

The all-inclusive leasing package allows you to exchange all or part of your mobility allowance to lease a brand-new car, and covers the cost of servicing, repairs, tax, and insurance for up to three named drivers.

As part of one of the largest automotive retailer groups in the UK, we offer the largest Motability fleet on the UK mainland, and you can choose from a diverse range of Motability cars from industry leading manufacturers.


How does the Motability Scheme work?

Leasing a vehicle through the Motability Scheme is quick and easy. Check your eligibility for the Scheme, and start your search by browsing our range of Motability cars online or visiting your local Vertu Motors dealership.

Exchange all or part of your mobility allowance, and if a higher spec model catches your eye, you can pay a one-off Advance Payment which covers the cost between your mobility allowance and total cost of your lease. Please note, the Advance Payment is non-refundable.

How do I qualify for the Motability Scheme?

You could qualify for the Motability Scheme if you receive one of the following mobility allowances and have at least 12 months' award length remaining. If you have a child aged three or over, you can also make a Motability application on their behalf if they are entitled to the Higher Mobility Component of DLA.

For further information on Motability eligibility, visit your local Vertu Motors dealership and speak to our fully accredited Motability specialists.

Adapt your Motability vehicle

The Motability Scheme offers around 500 vehicle adaptions to help make driving or travelling easier. Many of these can be fitted at no extra cost at the start of your lease and we can help you find the right adaption for your needs.

The future is electric

Many drivers are making the switch to electric, and the Motability Scheme makes it accessible to everyone. When you lease your first pure battery electric vehicle a home charge point can be installed at no extra cost.

Don't have access to off-road parking? Gain access to a network of over 8,000 nationwide charging points with the BP Pulse Polar Network or install a chargepoint at an approved drivers address.

Please note, you must contact and get approval from Motability for chargepoint installation at an approved drivers address.

The Motability Scheme Online Account gives you flexibility. You can manage your lease on the go and access your information - wherever you are.

New Vehicle Payment

The New Vehicle Payment from the Motability scheme could mean you receive £750. This payment, needed in a time of higher living costs and energy bills, can help you make the most of your Motability car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV).

The payment amount of £750 will be paid from February 2023. From this date, if you are paid the previous New Vehicle Payment amount of £250, do not worry. The balance will be corrected and the remaining £500 will be paid to you via bank transfer, or by cheque if we do not have your bank information.

Eligibility for the New Vehicle Payment relies on you being a New-to-Scheme customer who has taken delivery of or ordered a new vehicle before the end of 2023. Existing customers are also eligible, ensuring you have a live agreement from 31st December 2021.

Good Condition Bonus

When you return your vehicle at the end of your lease, you could be eligible for an up to £350 Good Condition Bonus, if it is still in good condition.

When you return your Motability vehicle it is sold through a network of dealers or at an auction house. Returning your car in good condition helps Motability to achieve the best prices, keeping costs low for all customers.

The amount you receive depends on the length of your lease, it's currently £250 for a three-year lease and £350 for a five-year lease. Motability will automatically send you the bonus if you are eligible. The fastest way to receive the New Vehicle Payment and Good Condition Bonus is by bank transfer via the Motability Scheme Online Account.

Please note: the Good Condition Bonus is subject to assessment.
