Changes announced to Motability scheme
A number of changes to the Scheme have been announced in a statement from Motability, the not-for-profit organisation that allows disabled people to buy new vehicles. They include:
- A�streamlined�selection of vehicles available, up to a maximum Advance Payment of �2,000 (this limit does not apply to wheelchair accessible vehicles).
- Nominated drivers under 21 will only be permitted where they live with the disabled customer.
- All nominated drivers need to live within five miles of the customer�s home.
The changes are designed to ensure that Motability provides clear policies, focused on the needs of the vast majority of customers. They will also help avoid misuse and misrepresentation of the Scheme.
The changes to car selection take place immediately, although Motability will honour all existing orders and commitments. Other changes will take effect from 1 January�2012.
There is no change for existing contracts, or nominated drivers named on�current�insurance certificates,�for the remainder of existing leases.
