Back in February 2022 Motability started a New Vehicle Payment of £250 for car and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) customers. Good news, Motability are increasing this payment to a fantastic £750 from the end of February 2023!
If you have already received a New Vehicle Payment of £250 direct from Motability, you’ll get an extra £500 and Motability UK will start to pay this from the beginning of March 2023. This will make your total payment from Motability to £750.
Customers do not need to contact Motability about this – they'll share more details in the next month or two about exactly when these changes will happen. (published January 2023)
The New Vehicle Payment will only be paid once – Motability will not give customers another payment for their next lease.
I’m not on the Motability Scheme yet or I’m waiting for my first car or WAV
If you get or order your first vehicle on the Motability Scheme before the end of 2023, you’ll be eligible for a New Vehicle Payment from Motability. Customers will receive this shortly after you get your new vehicle from Motability.
I already have a car or WAV on the Motability Scheme
Customers will become eligible for the payment when they get their next vehicle on motability.
You can only get this payment once via Motability, so if you took delivery of your new vehicle since Motability introduced this payment, you will not receive another payment for your next lease.
I’ve already received the £250 New Vehicle Payment. Will I get the extra £500?
Yes. This £500 payment is available to everyone who’s been paid a £250 New Vehicle Payment on the Motability scheme.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I get my new car or WAV before the £750 increase in February?
If you get your new car or WAV before the New Vehicle Payment increases to £750, you’ll receive £250 shortly after you get your new vehicle via the Motability scheme. You’ll then get another £500 to take your total New Vehicle Payment to £750 and Motability will start paying this from the beginning of March.
Will I get this every time I get a new vehicle?
No – you can only get this payment once.
Will I still get the New Vehicle Payment if my lease is extended?
Yes. If you choose to extend your lease, you’ll get the New Vehicle Payment shortly after you get your next Motability car or WAV.
I’m looking to join the Scheme, but I’m not ready to order. What will happen if my vehicle doesn’t arrive until 2024?
As long as you order your first vehicle before the end of 2023, you’ll still be eligible for this payment, even if you don’t get your vehicle until 2024 or later.
Will this payment affect my Good Condition Payment?
No, this payment is separate.
It will not affect if you’re eligible or the amount you receive for the Good Condition Payment from Motability, or End of Contract Payment for scooter and powered wheelchairs.
