New WAVs And The Motability Scheme

Lease A Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV)

Many people with a disability in the UK choose to use the Motability Scheme. You simply exchange your qualifying Mobility Allowance to lease a powered wheelchair, a scooter, a car or a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV). If you choose a WAV, every vehicle leased through the Motability Scheme comes with insurance for up to three drivers, full breakdown cover, annual road tax, tyre cover, windscreen replacement cover plus servicing and maintenance at an authorised supplier for the length of your lease. There's also a 20,000 mile per year mileage allowance. With a Motability WAV, the standard lease period is five years (two years more than a car lease), with the option to extend under certain circumstances.
