Mercedes-Benz Motability

at our Marshall Mercedes-Benz dealerships

Thanks to the Motability scheme, disabled drivers can get behind the wheel of a smart Mercedes-Benz, all of which are available through Marshall.

Through the scheme, you could drive a deluxe hatchback, such as an A-Class or a B-Class, a luxurious saloon like the C-Class or CLA, or the solid GLA SUV. Here at Marshall, we have a range of offers that can help you afford the Mercedes-Benz that tempts you the most, usually by reducing the price of the advance payment.

If you’re entitled to Mobility allowance, you can choose that car that you would like and pay for it using your allowance. If the payments or deposit are not all covered by the scheme, you simply pay the difference.

Designed to give disabled people greater independence, the scheme includes lots of motoring costs for a stress-free experience. Your car’s servicing and maintenance, including windscreen and tyre replacement costs, are all built in. Tax, accident and breakdown cover, as well as insurance for up to two drivers are also included in the scheme.

The car will be perfectly adapted to suit your needs with a range of alterations for stowage, access and driving controls all available. Most of these are free of charge and we can organise the adaptations for you.

For three years with an allowance of 60,000 miles, the car is yours to drive. At the end of the contract, you can choose a brand-new car.

How it works

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair by exchanging their Government funded mobility allowance .

If you receive either:

  • The Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA) or
  • The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP) or
  • The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or
  • The Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

... you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.

Allowances used on the Scheme

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following disability benefits:

Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)

This allowance is provided by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and can be used to cover the cost of a Motability lease agreement.

As of 8 April 2015, this allowance will be £57.45 per week.

To lease a car through Motability, you must have at least 12 months’ award length of the HRMC remaining.


War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

This allowance is provided by Veterans UK and can be used to cover the cost of a Motability lease agreement. As of 8 April 2015, this allowance will be £64.15 per week.


Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)

As part of its welfare reform programme, the Government has started to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64. The Motability Scheme will work with PIP in the same way as is it does with DLA. As of 6 April 2015, this allowance will be £57.45 per week.


Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

A new allowance called Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) was introduced as part of the Welfare Reform Act 2012. Those who receive this allowance will be eligible to join the Motability Scheme. For more information, visit Veterans UK website. As of 8 April 2015, this allowance will be £57.45 per week (this refers to the mobility element, which is the same rate as HRMC DLA and ERMC PIP).

The Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through Motability.
