You are eligible for this payment if you order your first vehicle before the end of 2024 or will receive it with your next vehicle if already on the Scheme.*

Additionally, for your first electric vehicle, the Motability scheme will expertly manage the arrangement and cost of a home chargepoint with standard installation**.

Do I get a no-claims bonus on Motability?

Unfortunately, due to the fact the vehicle is owned by Motability Operations Ltd, any accrued no-claims bonus will not be able to be carried forward.

Similarly, if a personal no-claims bonus was held prior to leasing a Motability vehicle, it is likely that this will no longer be accepted as of the time in which the lease with the Motability Scheme is terminated. However, some insurers do accept a previous no-claims history with them as suffice, although this often tends to have expired after two to three years.

RSA Motability (RSAM) may be able to offer you a letter of no claims however, detailing your time driving a Motability Scheme vehicle, which you could present to your new insurer. In order to request this letter, please contact RSAM.

Can any other allowance be used with Motability?

Other than the allowances mentioned above, unfortunately no other allowances may be used in conjunction with Motability under any circumstances.

Do I own the car at the end of the lease?

At the end of the lease, as the vehicle is owned by Motability Operations, you will be presented with three alternatives. You may either:

• Have your allowance reinstated and return the car
• Extend the lease and keep the current car
• Or, lease another car through the Motability Scheme

Terms and conditions

*You will receive the £750 if you order your first vehicle before the end of 2024. If you're already on the Scheme and have not had your New Vehicle Payment yet, you'll get it whenever you get your next vehicle.
If your Advance Payment is more than £750 you’ll need to pay the difference to your dealer, but if it’s less than £750 we’ll send you the difference after you get your vehicle. Your dealer will ask if you’d like to do this when you’re placing your order. If you’ve already ordered and would now like to put your New Vehicle Payment towards your Advance Payment, please speak to your dealer directly. You can only use the New Vehicle Payment towards the cost of your vehicle's Advance Payment. You cannot use it towards the cost of adaptations or optional extras. If you do not ask for your New Vehicle Payment to go your dealer, we’ll send this to you in full within a few weeks of getting your new vehicle.

**Non-standard installation may incur additional costs. For example, if your parking space is not next to your home or your electrical equipment needs to be upgraded. Or, if you do not have off-street parking or you cannot have a home chargepoint installed, the Motability Scheme will give you access to the bp pulse network of public chargepoints instead.
