You don’t even need to be able to drive as you can nominate up to two drivers as part of your lease.
VARIETY OF SCHEMES
Special terms have been arranged with Renault, as well as other motor manufacturers, wheelchair and vehicle adaptation suppliers, banks and insurers, so that today a variety of schemes can be offered to enable disabled people to become more mobile.
Motability customers agree to pay all, or part of their Mobility Allowance (DLA or WPMS), depending on their choice of vehicle, for the duration of their contract hire or hire purchase agreement.
