How does Motability work?​

The government-backed Motability Scheme enables motorists with a disability and in receipt of a higher rate mobility allowance to exchange their benefit for the lease on a new car. Whether you’re exchanging just part or all of your mobility allowance, the scheme provides you with the chance to retain your independence and can even include any adaptations that you may require to make the vehicle usable for you.

At Fred Coupe Nissan, we’re proud to be able to support eligible motorists in getting on the road in a high-quality new Nissan as part of the Motability Scheme. With experienced scheme experts on hand to guide you through the process, you can rest assured you’ll be behind the wheel of your next model in no time.


Am I eligible for the Motability Scheme?

This is a question that is of the utmost importance. After all, you don’t want to find the ideal car only to be disappointed to not qualify. Our Motability experts will be able to help you, but should you have at least 12 months remaining on one of the following allowances, you are likely to be eligible:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

For those that don’t drive, the scheme is still available, with carers and appointees able to be named drivers. Please speak to a member of our team today for more information. 

Joining the scheme

Joining the Motability Scheme is easy once you’ve checked your eligibility. Simply take the time to browse through the selection of new Nissan cars available from Fred Coupe Nissan to find one that best suits your requirements and your tastes. Once you’re happy with the model, sit down with our Motability expert and they’ll provide you with all the advice you need to secure the leasing agreement. Not only that, but they’ll ensure that any adaptations - such as access, storage or driving aids - are made to your vehicle.

In addition to the lease on a vehicle, taking advantage of the scheme also means you will be able to benefit from fully comprehensive insurance cover, breakdown cover, road tax, and all your servicing requirements. As such, it makes managing all your motoring needs simple.

At the end of the lease period - typically three years - you will be able to continue to benefit from the scheme and select a brand-new vehicle. This can even be arranged to be ready for the day you return your current model, meaning you will never be without transportation.
