What is Motability?

Motability is a scheme in the UK which enables disabled people to obtain a car, powered wheelchair or scooter by using their Government-funded mobility allowances.

The Motability Scheme, founded in 1977 by Lord Sterling of Plaistow and the late Lord Goodman, is a partnership between the charitable sector, Government, leading banks, motor and insurance industries. Since 1978 over two million[1] cars, scooters and powered wheelchairs have been provided to help disabled people with their mobility needs.
