Are You Eligible for Motability? We answer all your questions about the scheme!

Since the Motability Scheme was set up in 1997 it has helped millions of disabled people and families to gain independence and freedom. Here at Pulman, we have a team of trained experts ready to answer any Motability questions you might have and help you find your dream car!

With the Motability Scheme, you can simply exchange all, or part of, your Mobility allowance to lease a brand new SEAT, SKODA or Volkswagen. Every lease is all-inclusive, which means all you have to do is fuel up and off you go! The standard lease is over three years and the payments are simply deducted from your mobility allowance every four weeks and paid directly to Motability. At the end of your lease you have the option to simply hand your car back, or if like most customer you choose to stay with us, you can just pick a new car to lease!

So, who can join the Motability Scheme?

If you receive any of the allowances below, and have at least 12 months remaining on your award, you are eligible to apply or join the scheme. Or if you are the parent of a child ages three or over, who receive the allowance, you qualify too!

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

And what is included on the Motability scheme?

  • Insurance
  • Servicing and maintenance
  • Full breakdown assistance

  • Window and windscreen repair or replacement
  • Many adaptations at no extra cost

What is fantastic about the Motability Scheme is you choose who drives! You don’t have to drive to lease a car through the scheme. Many of our customers don’t drive – instead they select a named driver who drives the car on their behalf. So, your car could be driven by a family member, friend or carer.

Here at Pulman we make sure we deliver a fantastic customer experience, and at Pulman SKODA we were thrilled to be awarded with a regional award for our work with the Motability Car Scheme. This accolade was part of a programme of awards, launched last year by Motability Operations, to recognise and reward outstanding customer service.
