Honda Motability

Glyn Hopkin Honda is a Motability Scheme expert as we employ experienced advisers at each of our two sites in Essex to support members and those thinking of joining. If you are a current or prospective member we will be there for you during every stage of the application process, when searching for your next car and each time you need aftersales care.

How does the Motability Scheme work?

Through the scheme you would use your government mobility allowance to fund a lease on a brand new Honda car of your choice. There's a wide selection available, including different specification grades and engines to suit your requirements and driving style.

What is included on the scheme?

Your regular payment covers more than the lease, and all of this too:

  • Insurance;
  • Servicing and maintenance;
  • Breakdown cover;
  • Annual car tax;
  • Replacement tyres;
  • Window and windscreen repair or replacement; and
  • Certain adaptations.

Am I eligible?

Generally, anyone who currently receives one of the following mobility allowances and has at least 12 months of awards remaining will be granted membership to the scheme.

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA).
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP).
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS).
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).

If you are the parent or guardian of a child aged three years or older you can also apply for the scheme on their behalf.

Why choose Honda?

The main reason to choose Honda for your next Motability vehicle is the quality of the manufacturer's vehicles. With strong engines and superb craftsmanship throughout you can trust its cars to perform at their best for years and remain in an excellent condition. The automaker's refined engines also deliver economical returns to bring running costs down significantly.

COVID-19 Update 01/06/2020:

Motability Scheme prices will be available from Thursday 4 June. We are gradually contacting customers who are able to place an application with more information. The Scheme is still closed for new customer applications. See our FAQs for further updates.

Although dealers will begin to gradually reopen in England from 1 June, with social distancing measure in place, weeks of disruption mean we are working through a large backlog of both Motability orders, and sales of returned cars. For this reason, we ask for your understanding as we will need to take a phased approach to reopening the Scheme. Please be reassured that the Scheme will support you where possible to help you remain mobile during this time.

As the COVID-19 situation changes we understand that customers have a number of questions. The Motability Customer Services team is currently dealing with a high volume of calls, so we would ask for your support if you are unable to get through to them as quickly as usual.

We will continue to update this page regularly to ensure we cover the most frequently asked customer questions.

Vehicle handovers and new applications

I placed an application before lockdown, when will the handover of my car go ahead?

Handovers of cars that had already been ordered, have started to arrive at dealerships and are ready for dealers to pass on to customers this will start this week, subject to this being done in a COVID-19 safe environment. When your car is ready to be handed over, your dealer will be in touch with you to make an appointment. We expect that delivery of these pre-ordered cars will continue throughout June and into July.
