How Does the Motability Scheme Work?

At every Blade Group dealership we have specialist Motability teams to help you make the right decision when it comes to finding your new car. The process is simple and we’ve produced a step-by-step guide to how the Motability Scheme works.

The scheme is open to the elderly and partially disabled who currently receive a disability, War Pensioners’ or mobility allowance. For more information on eligibility, visit our ‘Am I eligible’ page.

Under the Motability Scheme, you can swap your weekly mobility allowance as payment towards a brand new car. Many cars are available without an inital payment, whilst an even wider range of options are available with advanced payments ranging from £99 up to £3,000 to cover the one-off cost of your new car.
