Are you getting the most from your Motability allowance?

The Motability scheme is a Government funded initiative to assist people with a disability to lease a car, scooter or electric wheelchair. The scheme, which has been running since 1978, has helped over 4 million people get mobile with a new car. Fred Coupe Nissan has been an approved Motability specialist dealer since 1985, with experts ready to find the vehicle best suited to your needs.

Are you eligible the Motability scheme?

The Motability Scheme enables you to exchange your government funded Motability allowance for a brand new vehicle. You will be eligible to order a new car on the scheme if you have one of the following:

•Higher Rate Mobility Component of the disability living allowance

•Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of personal independence payment

•War Pensioners Mobility Supplement

•Armed Forces Independent Payment

You need to have at least 12 months award length remaining to enable you to qualify for a new car under the Motability scheme. Even if you’re a non-driver, you are still able to lease a Nissan through the scheme and nominate someone to drive it for you.

Benefits of joining the scheme:

A new car of your choice every 3 years

At the end of your lease period, Motability customers are automatically offered a brand-new vehicle if they choose to renew their contract for another three years. Details of this will be sent a few months before the current contract expires (if you are still eligible).

Insurance, service and maintenance

A full maintenance program is included as part of the Motability package. Insurance coverage includes up to two nominated drivers, and is equivalent to a full policy found outside the scheme. This means that full coverage will be provided even if you choose not to drive yourself.

As well as insurance, regular maintenance and servicing are included as part of the Motability program and servicing can be arranged at your Motability dealership.

Free European breakdown assistance from RAC

Breakdown assistance and roadside recovery are also provided year-round by the RAC, who operate a special Motability Assist helpline.

Annual road fund license (Car tax)

Your vehicle road tax will automatically be renewed each year.

Replacement tyres, window and windscreen repair or replacement

Window, windscreen and tyre damage are included on the scheme.

60,000 mileage allowance over 3 years

If you go over 60,000 miles in the three years lease period, additional mileage will be charged at 5p per mile.

Many adaptions are available at no extra cost
