At TrustFord, we believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the freedom of travel, without discrimination. We all have different needs, but being able to move around freely opens up new horizons and a world of opportunities. With this in mind, Motability is a scheme that helps disabled people maximise their personal mobility, encouraging greater independence.
The Motability Scheme forefronts freedom by offering disabled people the opportunity to lease a vehicle without the worry and maintenance of owning one. If you haven’t heard of it before, or you’re thinking about applying, this helpful jargon-buster breaks down key Motability terms.
We all have needs that vary depending on our situations and circumstances. For some people, getting around can be more difficult because of a physical or invisible disability.
If you receive benefits for a disability that impedes your ability to travel around, the mobility component of your allowance is designed to help with any additional transportation costs you might incur. Each year, thousands of people who are registered disabled use their mobility allowance towards the lease and maintenance of a vehicle. This is known as the Motability Scheme.
If you have a physical or mental condition that affects your mobility, you could be eligible. To be considered, you need to meet at least one of the following criteria:
The scheme is also open to parents and appointed carers who can drive on behalf of the person with mobility issues. The only stipulation is that the vehicle must be used by or for the benefit of the disabled person. This could therefore mean driving lessons for a person with spina bifida, greater independence for someone with Parkinson’s or providing a means to great family holidays for a parent or carer of an autistic child.
When it comes to Motability, we understand that navigating some of the key terms can be confusing. So, here’s a list of Motability-related definitions to help give you a better understanding.
