WARNING - NEW TAX RULES START IN:

Volkswagen Motability

The Motability scheme enables disabled drivers to drive a suitably adapted car, with a range of Volkswagens available and a series of competitive deals.

There are a wide range of Volkswagen models to choose from, including the popular Golf, smart Passat and Touran MPV, just to name a few. Famously practical and generous in terms of size, they can all be adapted in a variety of ways, from stowage and access alterations to modifying the driving controls so they are easier to use. Most of these adaptations come at no extra cost and the team at Marshall Volkswagen can organise them all for you.

All you have to do is select the car you would like to drive and pay for it using your mobility allowance. Our range of deals are designed to make the cars even more affordable with little to nil advance payments.

Designed to take the hassle out of motoring, the scheme builds in lots of ongoing costs including servicing, annual road tax and accident and breakdown cover. Insurance for up to two named drivers is included, as well as tyre and windscreen replacements.

We are here to help you and will take care of the whole process for you. You’ll drive away in a car that’s perfectly adapted to suit you, and it will be yours for up to three years with a 60,000-mile limit.

To get started with a Motability Volkswagen, make an appointment with Marshall by calling us or filling in the online enquiry form.

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.
