Discover more independence – exchange your mobility allowance for a brand-new car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle) through the Motability Scheme at Wessex Garages.

New Vehicle Payment Increased to £750

The New Vehicle Payment aims to support claimants with the cost of running their new lease. Whether you’re new to the scheme or you’re renewing your lease, you’ll be able to enjoy the full £750.

Who is eligible for the new payments?

Customers who were new to the Motability Scheme during spring 2023 or renewing will receive the New Vehicle Payment of £750 when they take delivery of their car or wheelchair accessible vehicle.

Meaning if you take delivery of your first motability vehicle in 2023 or place an order during 2023, you will be eligible.

To make it even easier for you to order a new car, you now have the option to send your £750 New Vehicle Payment directly to your dealer to help towards the cost of your Advance Payment. If your Advance Payment is more than £750, you’ll just need to pay the difference to your dealer. If it’s less than £750, we’ll send the remaining amount to you after you get your new car.


At Wessex Garages we are proud to be associated with the Motability Scheme – a registered charity dedicated to enabling disabled people and war pensioners get back on the road. Since 1978, this organisation has helped over three million people gain access to a vehicle.

If you or someone you care for is eligible for the Higher Rate Component of the Disability Living Allowance, or for the War Pensioners’ Motability Supplement, you are eligible for the scheme. Motability allows you to contribute part or all of the allowance you receive towards a brand new car of your choice complete with modifications to make getting around as straightforward as possible.

You can take the car on lease over three years and at the end of the lease you can just bring the car back and swap it for another one. It's all available right here at Wessex Garages. When you come to Wessex Garages, you gain access to a wide range of adaptable vehicles from a host of trusted brands – including Kia, Nissan, Mazda and Hyundai - all in one location.
