The Motability scheme allows you to exchange your mobility allowance for a suitable motor car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV)
Using the scheme you will have access to a wide selection of cars and vehicles from a host of manufacturers and specialist suppliers, and with around 2000 different models available you will be able to find the right vehicle for your needs.
How do you choose a car? As with all mobility vehicles it is important that you consider exactly how you are going to use it and the types of journeys you will make. Factoring in all your day to day needs will help you to make sure the find the best vehicle possible.
A range of adaptations can also be made to cars to make them suitable for your own personal needs.
Modifications can be made to steering and controls, foot pedals and gearing to make them suitable for your driving needs.
Specialist seating solutions can help you to get in and out of the car and of course mechanisms for easy access and storage of wheelchairs and scooters are readily available.
As with all things the key is to speak to an experienced specialist. Motability currently has around 4,500 dealers in the UK who can give you the advice and assistance you need.
