The Motability Scheme is in place to provide worry free motoring, at SLM Toyota we have a team of motability specialists to help with your needs. Our motability scheme enables disabled people to use their government funded mobility allowance to lease a new car. The scheme is open to anyone who receives Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Allowance or War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement and has at least 12 months award length remaining when they apply.
At SLM Toyota applying for the scheme couldn’t be simpler - no waiting lists, credit checks or medical assessments are required. You can also nominate up to two friends or relatives as drivers if you do not drive. Parents and carers can also apply on behalf of a child. Our team of specialist will assist you through the process from start to finish.
90% of customers choose the contract hire of a new car because it boasts so many benefits. Many of our customers at SLM Toyota enjoy affordable, convenient, trouble-free motoring; choosing a brand new car every three years with insurance, servicing, tyres and breakdown cover all included. We can alter the car to suit your needs, and offer a wide range of adaptations, including hand controls and wheelchair accessible vehicles. A similar contract hire scheme also exists on the Powered Wheelchair and Scooter Scheme.
Alternatively, there are also Hire Purchase Schemes available for cars, powered wheelchairs or scooters for customers who want to own the vehicle at the end of the agreement.
The government is replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with a Personal Independence Payment and is a benefit that helps with the extra costs of a long-term health condition or disability for people 16 to 64.
PIP is a non-means tested benefit and is not affected by earnings, other income or savings. If you are aged between 16 to 64 and have daily living and/or mobility needs and require extra help due to an illness, disability or mental health condition, you may be entitled to PIP.
The Motability Scheme works with PIP the same way as it does with DLA. If you are newly awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Motability Component of PIP and have at least 12 months remaining on your award, you will be able to lease a car through the Motability Scheme at SLM Toyota.
