WHAT IS MOTABILITY?

i

Motability is a charity that helps disabled people of all ages. The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to exchange all or part of their government-funded mobility allowance in order to lease a brand new car of their choice.

The Motability scheme allows you the choice of three pricing options:

  • Cars that cost less than your allowance - meaning the remaining amount will be paid directly to you
  • Cars that cost the same as your full allowance
  • Cars with an Advance Payment - allowing you to add to your weekly allowance by paying a one-off upfront Advance Payment.

Peugeot are proud to be one of the founding members of the Motability scheme, which launched back in 1978, and since then we've continuously supported the charity and strongly believe in manufacturing cars which are accessible to everyone. We have a team of friendly, accredited experts at our dealerships who are able to discuss the best options with you, to meet your needs.

WHO CAN APPLY FOR MOTABILITY?

Who Can apply for motability

The Motability Car Scheme gives people who receive one of the following disability benefits (with at least 12 months' award length remaining) the opportunity to have the use of a new car in an easy and affordable way:

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

If you fall into any of these categories, or you care for someone who does, whether you are a carer, parent, or nominated driver, then you may be eligible. All you have to do is decide on your advance payment, which can be nothing at all if you prefer – depending on the model – then exchange part or all of your weekly allowance for your chosen Peugeot.

*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. See the link below for more information.

If you’re not sure if you’re eligible, you can check by calling the Peugeot Motability team on 0800 877 8201.

HOW DOES MOTABILITY WORK?

Once you’ve worked out what’s important to you in a vehicle, the next step is to visit your local Peugeot dealer. All of our dealerships have Motability experts who can discuss your preferred options with you and arrange a test drive. Your dealer can also discuss whether optional extras or adaptations might help make driving easier or more comfortable, and arrange those for you too.

When you've decided on the model you want, our Peugeot Motability specialists will complete your order. You will then receive an acceptance letter containing your Personal Identification Number (keep this safe, as you need it to collect your vehicle). Your dealer will let you know the expected delivery date for your new car, and will keep you informed of its progress. When visiting a Peugeot dealer, you'll need to bring the following:

  • Your driving licence
  • Certificate of entitlement from either DWP or SPVA
  • Proof of address (e.g. recent utility bill or bank statement)
  • Named drivers’ driving licences and consent for their details to be checked against the DVLA driver licence database (if your named driver is unable to come with you to the dealership, they must complete a Driver Consent form - please see link below)

As part of the ordering process, you and your drivers will need to sign a Statement of Responsibilities. This document simply confirms that you understand and agree to abide by the Scheme rules around car usage. See link below for more information.
