The Motability Scheme

The Motability Scheme is a charity set up over 40 years ago to help disabled people achieve independence. This is a government funded scheme where people who receive a Mobility allowance can exchange part or all of their monthly allowance to lease a brand new car of their choice.

Here at Howards Motor Group we have many dedicated Motability specialists to help you find the perfect car for your requirements. We represent eleven of the UK's most popular automotive brands, which enables us to offer a wealth of products and services.

The Motability Scheme has helped over 3 million people since its creation in 1978 to get back on the road and become independent again. The many benefits provided by the scheme explain why so many people have taken advantage of the opportunity.

Benefits of Motability?

There are numerous benefits of the Motability Scheme, which are outlined in a little more detail below. 'A new car of your choice every three years'

You choose a brand new car every three years. Motability will contact you a few months before your lease expires and if you decide to continue with Motability scheme, you can choose your new car for the next three years (provided you’re still eligible).


The worry-free package provides similar insurance cover to what you would expect under a fully comprehensive insurance policy. You can still lease a car even if you don’t drive yourself, you can nominate two drivers who can drive on your behalf. If you decide to leave the scheme at a later stage, you can request a letter confirming your claims history to take to your new insurer.

Reputation Reviews
  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. Company Number: 1108986

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
