Currently over 600,000 people with disabilities in the UK enjoy the freedom provided by a Motability vehicle with an estimated 1.8 million people who are eligible. The Motability Scheme is an affordable way for disabled drivers to lease a vehicle using either their Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payments (PIP). Motability vehicles include insurance for two named drivers and there are no further worries throughout the lease with servicing, maintenance and breakdown all included. For more information on the scheme, click here.
If you are interested in joining the scheme and think you may be eligible, you can check here using the handy eligibility checker.
As far as choosing a vehicle is concerned, there has never been so much choice and many vehicles across the Ford range are available with little or no advance payment. For more information, you can view the current price list here.

When ordering a vehicle, it is important that you choose the right vehicle for you, particularly if adaptations are required. That is where the team at Brig-Ayd come in; with some forty years of experience, they really are the best people to advise on what should be fitted to your vehicle to ensure your individual needs are accommodated.Many adaptations can be fitted at no extra cost when ordering a vehicle through the Motability Scheme. Others require a payment, but this is often subsidised, and can be made easily with your advance payment (if applicable) at the start of the vehicle lease.
Brig-Ayd Controls have specialised in providing vehicle adaptations since they were established in 1975. They are one of the country’s leading suppliers of driving aids for disabled drivers and passengers and their products include wheelchair and scooter hoists, hand controls and left foot accelerators to name but a few. Gates and Brig-Ayd Controls have formed an excellent working relationship over the years helping many disabled drivers locally through their association.
