What is Motability?

 Motability is a registered UK charity that helps disabled people become more mobile. They help you use the Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of your Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or War Pensionerís Mobility Supplement (WPMS) to lease or buy a car. Motability itself is independent, voluntary and non-profit-making. They take advantage of tax concessions to help provide you with affordable transport. Woodford Motors are accredited suppliers for Motability and have undergone regular checks since accreditation to ensure that the very high standards of Motability are met.

How the scheme works
There are various ways that you can become mobile with Motability and Woodford Motors help, either by using the Scheme to contract hire a new car, or use hire purchase to buy a new or quality used car. You do not have to be a driver to qualify. If you prefer, you can obtain a car as a passenger and nominate up to two other people as the drivers. Children from the age of five can qualify for cars as passengers, provided that they receive HRMC of DLA.

The Schemes

    • Three year contract hire for new vehicles
