The Motability Scheme was set up by the government in 1978 and since then it has helped more than 1.7 million disabled people become mobile. The Scheme works by enabling customers to lease (or buy) a car using the Higher Rate Motability Component of the Disability Living Allowance, or War Pensioner's Mobility Supplement.
