New Vehicle Payment Increased to £750

With the cost of living increasing and energy bills rising, Motability introduced a £250 ‘New Vehicle Payment’ to help offset rising costs. From the end of February, this payment will be increasing to £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.

Customers who received the New Vehicle Payment of £250 back in 2022 will be elibable to get that topped up by £500, you should recieve this payment around March.


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.
