What is the Motability and how does it work?

Cawdor is proud to support Motability - helping people with disabilities get out and about independently.

Motability can give you or someone you know access to a brand new car, tailored to your specific needs. Vauxhall has been part of this scheme since its launch in 1977, and at Cawdor our Motability specialists will be happy to discuss the benefits of each model for you, and to arrange any adaptations to your car that may be necessary.

Giving you independence

Have your own car that's been adapted to your own needs can give you much more day-to-day freedom. Being able to drive or be driven to wherever you want to go to!

Motability will help you get on the road and stay on the road, with a brand new car adjusted specifically to your requirements every three years. What's more, most of your running costs will be covered by your allowance, so your main expense will just be fuel.​

What is included?

  • All servicing and maintenance
  • MOT, Road Tax and windscreen repair
  • Tyre repair and replacement
  • An allowance of up to 60,000 over your three years with a brand new car
  • Insurance and accident cover for two drivers, plus passengers
  • Insurance cover for driving abroad
  • Full breakdown cover

Ready to go?

The Motability scheme covers a wide range of adaptions to make sure that you're comfortable in your brand new Vauxhall - from driving controls to accelerators. Our Motability team at Cawdor will be happy to discuss these with you.

To join the scheme, we'll first check whether you're eligible - you can read more about that below. After that, our Motability specialists will be happy to arrange your perfect brand new car for you.
