With the help of the Motability Scheme, people with a disability can lease a brand new ŠKODA vehicle from Azur ŠKODA. The scheme is designed to deliver easy, straightforward motoring for everyone. Your lease package covers most costs that come along with owning and running a car. These include your vehicles aftersales servicing, insurance, road tax and breakdown cover.

It is very easy to join the Motability Scheme and utilise your government-funded mobility allowance or supplement to pay for the lease on your new ŠKODA. You are eligible to join the Motability Scheme if you receive one of the following payments:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA) - as of April 12, 2017, this allowance is £58 per week
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP) - as of April 10, 2017, this allowance is £58 per week.
  • War Pensioner's Mobility Supplement (WPMS) - as of April 12, 2017, this allowance is £64.80 per week
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) - as of April 12, 2017, the mobility element of the allowance is £58 per week.

To be entitled to lease a car using one of these disability benefits, you need to have at least 12 months of payments remaining. If your allowance does run out before the end of your agreement then your claim must be renewed or extended in order to continue paying for your Motability lease. If for any reason your allowance is not renewed or extended, you will need to contact us immediately to discuss the next steps available to you, don't worry, you will not be expected to pay the amount outstanding on the lease.

You can also apply on behalf of a child aged three or older who receives a mobility allowance, in order to drive the car on their behalf. The HRMC DLA payment is made from the date that child turns three, you are able to apply up to three months in advance for the lease to start on their third birthday.

A Motability car needs to be used by, or for the benefit of, the person with the disability. However, they do not need to be in the car for every journey and other named drivers in the household can also use the car.There is no restriction on the number of people in the same household who lease a car through the Motability Scheme, as long as each individual meets the given eligibility criteria.
