How Does Motability Work?

The Motability scheme allows disabled drivers to lease a brand new car in exchange for their mobility allowance, provided by the Government. At Sturgess, our specialist team have been assisting Motability customers for a number of years, helping people in the Leicestershire area to find a vehicle which perfectly matches their needs.

Choosing your next car from a Sturgess dealership ensures that the process of selecting, ordering and taking delivery of a new car is stress-free. After all, buying a new car should be a pleasure, not a chore! Motability cars all include insurance, servicing and maintenance, RAC breakdown recovery, tyres and road tax at no extra cost. What's more, many adaptations are available at no extra cost and the 36 month lease means that you can exchange your car for a new model every three years.

We arrange the insurance, breakdown assistance, servicing and maintenance, and everything’s already included in the price you pay.

So we take care of everything, you just add fuel and go! It’s a simple as that.


You pick the brand new car of your choice from a huge range of all the latest makes and models, at a price that works for you.

You decide who drives and you get to pick a new car every three years.


Every three months we negotiate prices with the leading car manufacturers, to make sure we’re offering you unbeatable value and big savings, whatever your budget.


If you are carer to a person who qualifies for the Motability Scheme, the team at Sturgess are here to support you.

Someone who provides unpaid care for a friend or family member who would be unable to cope without their support is defined as a carer.

If that describes you then you are one of seven million people throughout the UK.

As the carer of someone with disabilities you are, of course, welcome to help with all the decisions and processes involved in getting a car through the Motability Scheme. However, we can only discuss the Motability agreement of the customer (i.e. the person you care for) with you if they add you as a nominee. This can happen at any point in the process and is easy to do – the customer simply needs to complete a nominee form.

Our Motability specialists can help with completing this form and once you are an appointed nominee you can speak on the customer’s behalf.

You will also be able to make minor changes such as adding new drivers to the insurance policy of the Motability car.

What could I receive?

If you are selected to be either the nominee or the appointee you could receive a car through the Motability Scheme along with the added benefits of being on the scheme.

What benefits are there?

As well as receiving a brand new car every 3 years (providing you still qualify for the scheme) you will receive insurance, vehicle servicing, maintenance, full RAC breakdown cover, tyre and windscreen replacement as well as 20,000 miles a year mileage allowance.
