With Motability you get;
  • Insurance included
  • Road Tax Included
  • MOT free due to in being a brand new car
  • free Services
  • free Repairs


Are they covered in the same way when buying the car on HP using the motability payments.

hi, insurance isnt covered ,or services but mots are,tax is exempt anyway and at the end you own it which on contract hire you have nothing to show for that 7000 youve paid out ..and its only 39-not 49.10 that they want with no advance payments? is that good or what?

Thanks for the advise, only asking because my Daughter turns 3 in May and is currently in reciept of higher rate DLA, so in theory should be entitled to the Motability scheme once she turns 3, we are currently waiting to hear.

Just considering options.

Our current thoughts are to lease either a Citreon C4 Picasso 5seater, a Nissan Qashqai or a new style Renualt Scenic 5 seater, all currently have nil advanced payment.

You say, with lease you have nothing to show for the outlay of 7k, but it is 7k that is being given to you by a charity, so you are no worse off really.

It's not being given by a charity, it's been funded by the taxpayer.

Yes 38 pw. but you have to be registered disabled or have a family member who needs transport.

Some cars you have to pay upfront payments, in some cases near 1000 right upto 10k for posh Audi's (you don't get that back) Thats mainly for more disirable cars.

Know a couple of people whose mother/father have got a car on this scheme, and just passed it down to their kids as they'll never use it. Free car!
