Mobility Car Buying Guide


If you have restricted mobility and rely on a wheelchair to get around, a mobility car could be a huge help, enhancing your independence in your day-to-day life. When buying a mobility car, everyone�s needs are different: Mobility cars come in many different shapes and sizes designed to cater for individual needs.


By owning a mobility car or leasing one through the UK Motability Scheme you can gain more freedom, and be able to get out and about without having to depend on arrangements made in advance with community or public transport providers.

The Process

When deciding which mobility car is right for you the first step is to assess what you need from your vehicle. When you have established a rough list of your needs the search can begin! To find your ideal car, search online for specialist converters to see what�s available - the best mobility car manufacturers offer free home demonstrations of vehicles which may be suitable for you. Once you�ve narrowed down your choice, the final part of the process is ordering your new vehicle through your chosen converter.

Choosing the Right Vehicle

There are many different factors to consider when buying a mobility car. It is important to consider what you will be using the car for and how this affects your needs. Will you be using it mainly for leisure, or general travel, and how many people will you want it to carry? Other important factors to consider include your budget, fuel efficiency and additional features of the car.

Adaptations may be made to your mobility car and these can be an important consideration when choosing the right car. There are many kinds of car adaptations available: aids which can make driving easier and more comfortable by helping with steering, signaling, safety, stowage and access. Discuss your needs with your chosen car manufacturer - many adaptations can be added to your vehicle free of charge through the Motability Scheme.



You can buy a mobility car direct from a converter or you can go through the Motability Car Scheme. The Scheme provides help in getting a suitable car for people who receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement.



When you have decided what car you want, ordering your new vehicle is easy. Most suppliers of mobility vehicles will help you complete the relevant paperwork for Motability grants if needed and assistance is available throughout the ordering process.
