Financial Help

For customers who would otherwise be unable to afford the type of vehicle they need, Motability may be able to offer financial help. This could include the Advance Payment for a car, adaptations, driving lessons or a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV).

Establishing what you need
The first thing to do is to consider what kind of solution you need to achieve mobility. You should think about:
  • Your personal mobility needs
  • What you need the car for
  • Whether you need to take equipment, such as a scooter or wheelchair in the car
  • Whether anyone else needs to travel with you
Then search Beadles Motability cars and prices and match potential vehicles to your needs. You should always consider the least expensive options first, and then find your nearest Beadles dealership and call us to arrange a visit or test drive.

We can support you by:
  • Advising you about cars and adaptations that would meet your needs; some of which may be available at a low Advance Payment
  • Arranging a lease extension on your current Motability car if it is still suitable
  • Arranging a mobility or driving assessment to find out exactly what you need
If Motability is able to provide financial help towards the solution that meets your needs, you are expected to contribute as much as you can afford towards a vehicle solution that will meet your mobility needs. 

What can you get financial help towards?
  • Advance Payments on standard production cars. This is the one-off upfront payment on a car
  • Adaptations such as swivel seats and wheelchair hoists. More basic adaptations, such as hand controls, pedal modifications and steering wheel balls are available free of charge through our Motability Managed Adaptations Programme (MMAP).
  • Driving lessons: if you are a Motability customer or you are applying to join the Motability Scheme, you may be eligible for help towards the cost of lessons.
Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) for customers who wish to get in a car while remaining seated in their wheelchair, whether as a driver or passenger. Applications for these vehicles can, in some cases, take a little longer and may require a mobility assessment to fully understand your needs.

War Pensioners and Ex-invalid Vehicle Service Holders
War Pensioners
If you receive the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement and have a Motability car, you may be eligible for help from the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency, based on your medical records. If you need a vehicle or adaptations costing more than the standard grants they can offer and you are unable to meet the cost yourself then you can apply to Motability for help.

Ex-invalid Vehicle Service Holders 
Motability can also help you if you previously drove a three-wheeled blue trike or other Government vehicle. 

Still need help?
If you have carefully considered your needs and cannot find a suitable vehicle in your price range, please contact Motability Customer Service team on 0300 456 4566 to discuss your options, including the possibility of financial assistance from Motability.
