Volkswagen Motability

The Motability Scheme helps thousands of disabled motorists across Britain to remain mobile by swapping part or all of certain government-funded mobility allowances for a lease on a new car. Des Winks Volkswagen is pleased to be a partner for the scheme, and can help you with everything from applying, searching for a vehicle and maintaining your choice as long as you are a member.

If you are currently receiving one of the following allowances, you may be eligible to benefit from Motability:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

If you are entitled to lease a car through the charity, Volkswagen has plenty to offer. Its model family includes compact hatchbacks like the Up!, Golf and Polo, alongside larger models such as the Passat, Touran and Tiguan. The range is renowned for its reliability, and the luxurious comfort enjoyed at the wheel is also guaranteed after adaptations are made in line with your requirements.

As part of each lease, you will receive a brand-new vehicle every three years, and won’t have to pay any extra for servicing, road tax, insurance, breakdown cover or replacement tyres. What’s more, up to two named drivers can be added to the agreement to make use of the car.

By choosing Des Winks Volkswagen, you’ll benefit from the support of a Motability specialist at our Scarborough site who will organise your application and handle all the paperwork. They will help you to choose the right model, arrange any adaptations free of charge, and will always be available to assist you throughout each lease.
