As a registered charity, the Motability Scheme has received much acclaim for its support of motorists with a disability since its launch back in the 1970s. By enabling eligible motorists to use their mobility allowance as payment towards a vehicle lease, the scheme - which is supported by leading manufacturers such as Citroën - provides some of the very latest and best vehicles to be purchased and adapted according to motorists’ needs.
To be eligible for the scheme, it’s essential that you’re in receipt of one of the following:
Regardless of the allowance you receive, it’s important to note that you must have at least 12 months’ award remaining in order to be eligible.

If you return your car in good condition at the end of your lease, you could be eligible to receive our Good Condition Bonus. The amount you receive depends on the length of the agreement: it's currently £500 for a three-year lease and £800 for a five-year lease.
When you hand back your car at the end of the lease, your dealer will take a photo and brief description of the car's condition. We know that over the course of your lease your car may show signs of wear and tear including minor scratches, dents or damage caused by wheelchairs or other mobility aids. However, if your car shows no sign of serious damage, you could be eligible for the bonus. You may still be entitled even if you have made an insurance claim or have a car on a low mileage lease extension. Please be aware if you have ended your agreement early, you will not be eligible for the bonus.
Receiving the bonus
If you are in line to receive the bonus, there is no need to contact us - we will automatically send you a cheque within 28 days of the car being returned.
The Good Condition Bonus is our way of saying thank you for looking after your Motability car. When you return your car at the end of your lease, it is sold, either online through a network of dealers, or at an auction house. Handing back your car in good condition helps us to achieve the best prices, keeping costs low for all our customers.
