Volkswagen have partnered with Motability for many decades, and during that time Volkswagen and Volkswagen dealers have worked together to help disabled people stay mobile so they can carry on doing all the things they want to do.
Motability is a Government-backed scheme that allows people with a disability or illness to exchange their Mobility Allowance to pay for the cost of a brand new VW car. The Motability Scheme leases cars to people who qualify through receiving one of the Government's Mobility Allowances:
- The Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HMRC DLA)
- The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
- In Scotland, the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Child Disability Payment (CDP) or the Enhanced Rate Mobility Part of Adult Disability Payment (ADP)
- The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
Even if you don't actually drive (or you’re planning on learning in the future), you can still lease a new Volkswagen and simply nominate a maximum of 3 named drivers to use the car on your behalf.
