ŠKODA on the Motability Scheme in Horsham, West Sussex

The Motability scheme has been changing people’s lives since it started in 1978 and we're are delighted to be among the manufacturers who support the charity. At Station Garage we understand that if you have a disability, a car can make an enormous difference to your quality of life.

ŠKODA prides itself on its vehicles being Simply Clever, and it’s one of the reasons that many drivers with reduced mobility choose these practical cars for their vehicle through the Motability Scheme. Vehicles valued up to £25,000 are available through the Scheme, which means most ŠKODA models are available.

They’re fantastic value, coming with low Advanced Payments and generous equipment lists, and can be adapted to help make living with your ŠKODA as convenient and comfortable as possible. Even better, many of these adaptations can be made at no additional cost.

Speak to our Motability specialist to discuss your requirements.

What’s included?

The Motability Scheme is designed to take care of all your car costs - the only thing you have to pay for on top is fuel.

In exchange for your weekly payment, you’ll receive:

  • A brand new ŠKODA every three years
  • Comprehensive motor insurance
  • Road tax
  • Scheduled servicing
  • Replacement tyres
  • Breakdown cover, including assistance at home, roadside labour, onward travel and/or a replacement vehicle
  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

Am I eligible to join the Scheme?

The Motability Scheme is designed for drivers with disabilities, and/or families living with disabled children over the age of 3.

If the disabled person is unable to drive because of their age or disability, they can nominate up to two people to drive for them. To prevent abuse of the Scheme, these drivers must live within 5 miles of the disabled person; if the driver is under 25, they must live at the same address.

The disabled person doesn’t have to be in the car for every journey, they would simply need to benefit from the journey. In practice, this means nominated drivers can use the car for shopping and other routine activities, as long as the disabled person will benefit.

To qualify, the disabled person or child in question will need to receive one of the following mobility allowances, with at least 12 months’ award length remaining:

As of 8 April 2015, this allowance is £57.45 per week.

As of 6 April 2015, this allowance is £57.45 per week.

As of 6 April 2015, this allowance is £64.15 per week.

As of 8 April 2015, the mobility element of the allowance is £57.45 per week.
