We at Bennett Renault are proud to be supporters of the government-backed Motability Scheme, helping those motorists with a disability get behind the wheel of a brand new vehicle in exchange for their mobility allowance. This scheme is an essential initiative in helping eligible drivers maintain their independence, so ensure you check whether you’re in a position to benefit from today.
In order to be eligible for the Motability Scheme, you should currently be in receipt of one of the following, with at least 12 months’ award remaining:
- Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
- Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
There is no age limit for taking advantage of the scheme, and you do not have to be able to drive in order to benefit. Up to two named drivers can be added to the lease, meaning parents of children with a disability will be able to drive a brand new vehicle on their behalf. What’s more, a third driver can often be added for an additional fee.
Please note that selected convictions or endorsements may impact your ability to meet the eligibility criteria and should be discussed in full with a member of our Motability team. With many years’ experience in helping drivers get behind the wheel of a new Renault as part of the scheme, we’ll be able to check your eligibility and talk through the various options that are available to you.
Simply pick up the phone, submit an online enquiry form, or use our live chat function today in order to discuss with us direct. Alternatively, you can drop in to our dealership in person to discuss with our experts and to browse the range of models we have available.
