Buying and adapting a car can be expensive. The Motability Scheme - run by the independent not-for-profit organisation Motability - gives disabled people the opportunity to own or lease a car at an affordable price.
The Motability Scheme can help you with leasing or buying a car if drive a car for a child aged three or over who is entitled to the higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance.
If money is a problem when financing the car or adaptations, Motability may be able to provide a grant through their own charitable fund or the Specialised Vehicle Funds, which they administer for the government.
Disabled people don't have to pay VAT on the cost of hiring a car through the Motability Scheme. The cost of any work involved in adapting a vehicle for a disabled person is also eligible for VAT relief.
If you are receiving higher rate mobility component of your child’s Disability Living Allowance then do not delay, telephone or visit the Motability website for more information.
