Motability FAQS

Motability FAQS

What type of lease is it?

Motability leases are all contract hire arrangements. It's the most common form of vehicle leasing agreement. Fixed amounts are paid for the duration of the contract and, at the end, you return the car. Most people repeat the process and get another car on the scheme.

How do I arrange the monthly payments

At Hendy, we help you arrange for your benefits to be paid directly by the Department for Work and Pensions. Unless you opt for a car lower in value than your mobility allowance, you won't see the money. Motability are responsible for allocating the money as necessary to cover everything that's included.

What's an advanced payment?

Some high spec cars will need an upfront payment. We call it an advance payment. It's not a deposit and isn't refunded at the end of your lease.

Can I return my Motability car early?

You would have to call us to discuss. If you cancel any Motability agreement more than 3 times in any 7-year period, it could affect your eligibility.

Cancelling your lease also means you can't get a Good Condition Bonus. This is the scheme's way of saying thank you for returning cars with no damage.

What's the milages allowance on a Motability car?

With Motability cars, you get a mileage allowance of 60,000 miles over 3 years. If you go over, the extra miles will be charged at 5p a mile.

If you've driven fewer than 15,000 miles at the end of your agreement, you could apply to keep your car for 1 or 2 more years and get a 20,000 mileage allowance each year.

Can I use the car for work?

You can use your Motability car to travel to and from work. It's meant to be used by, or for the benefit of, a disabled person. The insurance will cover social and domestic purposes including travel between home and work. You couldn't use it for unauthorised business purposes e.g. as a taxi or delivery car.

What happens at the end of the lease?

You have 3 options:

  • • Choose your new Motability car for the next 3 years

  • • Keep your car longer if you're eligible for a low mileage lease extension

  • • Return the car and start getting your mobility allowance again

Is it possible for a household to get more than 1 car on the Motability scheme?

Because you use your allowance to cover the cost of the lease, it's only possible to get 1 car yourself. But there are no restrictions on how many Motability cars a household can have. If more than 1 individual gets the qualifying mobility allowance, you can have more cars. It won't affect anyone else's eligibility.

Can I change the named drivers?

Yes. You'll have to contact RSA Motability (RSAM), who provide the insurance, and let them know the following details of the new driver:

  1. • Driving licence number

  2. • Any motoring convictions

• Previous loss, damage or insurance claims in the past 5 years

The new driver will have to be around when you call so they can give their consent for their details to be checked with the DVLA.

How it works


From the early electric carriages to Tesla’s first all-electric sports car, the concept of the all-electric vehicle has slowly evolved to become an environmentally friendly reality.
