Ridgeway Volkswagen Van Centres, Motability & You.

If you are disabled, you may be able to exchange your mobility allowance to get a Volkswagen that suits your needs. What’s more you don’t even need to drive. Family, friends or carers can drive on your behalf.

What is Motability?

Ridgeway Volkswagen Van Centres is delighted to support the Motability Scheme, a registered charity which enables disabled people to lease a new vehicle by exchanging their Government-funded mobility allowance.

About Motability

Motability provides thousands of people with a brand new, worry-free vehicle. With Motability everything is taken care of so you can enjoy the freedom to drive. Get a vehicle through Motability, and insurance, maintenance, RAC breakdown recovery, servicing, tyres and windscreens are all included at no extra cost. You lease your car on a 3 year Contract Hire and get a brand new vehicle every three years.


If you receive any of the following, you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme:
  • the Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • the War Pensioners’ Mobility Allowance (WMPS)
  • the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

As long as you have 12 months of your award remaining you’re guaranteed to be accepted regardless of age. If you cannot or do not wish to drive, you can choose family members or friends to be the named drivers. Parents who have a child with a disability can also participate in the scheme.
