Q: How does Vauxhall Motability work?
A: Your mobility allowance is swapped for a lease on a brand new Vauxhall car. You choose the exact model you want and the payment is taken straight out of your mobility allowance every four weeks. For cars that cost less than your allowance, you get to keep the difference. You’re able to nominate someone to drive on your behalf, and you can also get a Vauxhall Motability car for someone who’s under 17. This gives anyone with limited mobility a way to keep their freedom.

Q: What’s the mileage allowance on a Vauxhall Motability car?
A: For a three-year agreement, you get a total mileage allowance of 60,000 miles. For five-year agreements, the limit is 100,000 miles. Anything over the allowance is charged 5p per mile. If you’ve only driven under 15,000 miles, you may be able to keep the car for another one or two years for 20,000 miles per year.
Q: What Vauxhall cars care available on the scheme and how much will they cost me?
A: Find the full list of the Vauxhall Motability cars available here. Models change every three months. The prices vary model to model. With cheaper leases you might get part of your mobility allowance back. More expensive models require an advance payment.

A: You can’t buy your car, but you have three options:
- Choose another Vauxhall car to lease for three years.
- Extend your current lease (only available in the final three months of an agreement.)
- Return your car and regain your Mobility allowance.
Q: How much is the Motability good condition bonus?
A: Return your Vauxhall Motability car in good condition and you can receive up to £600 back for a three-year lease. Keep your car in good condition (paintwork, interior, tyres etc.) and you’ll get a cheque in the post!
Q: Can I use my relative’s Vauxhall Motability car for work?
A: Only officially-nominated drivers can drive a Vauxhall Motability car for the sole benefit of the claimant. E.g. you could drive to the shops to get some shopping and pick up medication, among other daily routines.
Q: How long does it take to get a Vauxhall Motability car?
A: The lead time on your new car varies case by case. Once we’ve helped you to finalise your application, we’ll let you know how may weeks until your delivery. You won’t receive your new car if you already have a Vauxhall on Motability until the end of your agreement.
Q: Can I change my Vauxhall car on Motability early?
A: You need a valid reason to change your Motability car early. In order to change models, you should cancel your current lease and apply for another agreement. Doing so, you incur a £250 admin fee and waive your good condition bonus too. Cancelling your agreement more than three times in seven years may affect future eligibility.
