According to the scheme guidelines, you need to have at least 12 months remaining on your award to join the Motability Scheme.  If you have less than 12 months remaining, you will not be able to place a new application until your allowance is extended or renewed.


How do I obtain my next car on the Motability scheme?

You may order your next car three months before the end of your current lease.  However, it is a good idea to start thinking about your next vehicle even before this due to possible manufacturer lead times.  

If your next car is delayed being delivered for some reason, then we can arrange a short-term extension of your current lease in the meantime.


What happens if my Motability car gets damaged?

You will be required to maintain your car in good condition throughout your lease, allowing for reasonable wear and tear.

Therefore, it is important to get the vehicle properly repaired if your car gets damaged outside of what may be considered reasonable. This may include things such as deep dents and scratches, tears or stains on the interior or large cracks in any plastic trim.

If you are unsure whether the damage would be considered reasonable, contact one of our dealerships and we will be more than happy to advise.

Which Motability car is right for me?
