The Government announcements regarding COVID-19 are having a major impact on the Scheme. Most dealership showrooms are now closed, meaning they are unable to accept any new orders, manage handovers or car returns.
As we are unable to accept any new orders, the latest prices for the Motability Scheme will not be launched as usual on 1 April 2020. We are monitoring the situation and will advise when this changes.
Meanwhile, if you are coming to the end of your lease, we will automatically extend this for six months. There will be no need to contact us; and you will continue to be insured.
If you plan to leave the Scheme at the end of your lease, contact us so we can discuss arrangements.
Non-essential service, maintenance and repairs are likely to be cancelled as dealers close, but the RAC will continue to offer an emergency breakdown service. Kwik Fit centres remain open and RSA Motability (RSAM) will be able to handle claims, but please be prepared for longer calling times than usual.

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.
