Motability Cars

In 1978, the Government launched the Motability Scheme which, in the ensuing years, has helped millions of disabled motorists to enjoy greater mobility.

At Cawdor, we are proud to support this initiative, and provide several great vehicles from our Ford, Vauxhall and Mitsubishi ranges.

In order to qualify for Motability, you will need to be in receipt of one of the following government-funded mobility allowances:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment


Provided you have at least 12 months remaining on one of the above allowances, you will be able to exchange it for a brand new car at Cawdor. This means that you could soon be behind the wheel of a vehicle such as The Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Grandland X or Mitsubishi Outlander.

In fact, there are many great cars available as part of Motability, from city cars and superminis to SUVs and MPVs. Not only that, the scheme allows you to select a brand new model every three years.

There are many other advantages to Motability. For instance, we can make adaptations to your vehicle of choice to it easier for you to access, drive and stow items aboard. For example, we can fit hand-operated accelerator and brake controls that are positioned adjacent to the steering wheel. In most cases, these adaptations can be made free of charge.

Motability also includes insurance cover, servicing and repairs and full breakdown assistance. Even if you can’t drive yourself, you can nominate up to two other people to do so for you.

Please take the time to explore Motability at Cawdor – for any or all of the participating brands. If you see a particular model that you like the look of, please don’t hesitate to book your test drive.

Our Motability experts are on hand at your nearest branch to answer any questions you might have. We will be more than happy to talk through all the options with you, so please get in touch with us whenever you are ready.
