Motability Scheme customers under the age of 25 are only allowed to drive cars, crossovers or SUVs with an insurance group of 16 or lower and an engine that produces 120 brakehorse power (BHP) or less (this rule excludes Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles). Here are some of the best Motability cars that can be used by drivers under 25.
In addition to the rules regarding drivers aged under 25, Motability only allow one named driver under the age of 21 on the insurance policy. This can be the disabled customer, or a different driver with a full drivers licence ideally living at the same address as the customer with a disability. For further information, contact the insurer of Motability vehicles, RSA Motability.
Young people who receive a Higher Rate Mobility Allowance can learn to drive from the age of 16, a year earlier than other drivers in the UK. Motability Scheme customers can sometimes get charitable support from Motability to help pay towards the cost of driving lessons.
