Roadside (Garages) Ltd Kia is proud to be a member of the government-funded Motability Scheme which has been helping motorists with a disability retain their independence by supporting the purchase of a new car. Our Kia Motability Specialists, Cara Barnes, Lyndsey McGookin and John Law help assist motorists through the application process and onto the road in a high-quality new Kia.
The Motability Scheme has been in operation since 1977, enabling those in receipt of the following to apply to the scheme. In exchange for all – or part – of their mobility allowance, motorists are able to purchase a new Kia for a great price.
There is no upper age limit. As long as you receive one of the allowances, you should be eligible for the Scheme. Parents or guardians can order a car on behalf of a child aged three years and above, who is receiving HRMC DLA. To lease a car through Motability, you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining. Only the higher or enhanced rate of the mobility allowance is used.
Up to two named drivers are included as part of your lease; these can be yourself, friends, family or carers. You can also add a third driver at an additional cost. Therefore, you can still lease a car even if you don't drive – you simply nominate two drivers who can drive on your behalf. Nominated drivers should normally live within five miles of the disabled customer's address. You’ll also need to confirm that all proposed drivers agree to the terms and conditions for using a Motability car.
All applicable models in the Kia Motability range will be fully taxed, serviced and insured, ensuring that great value is guaranteed. There is even the added advantage that, after three years, eligible motorists will be entitled to a brand-new vehicle.
