The Renault Motability Scheme

Through the Renault Motability Scheme, motorists with a disability can access a new Renault car that is perfectly matched to their personal requirements. At Glyn Hopkin Renault our dedicated team of Renault Motability specialists are on hand to help you navigate the Renault Motability Schemes available. If you are eligible, you can take advantage of a fantastic choice of New Renault vehicles, which are ready to be customised for their first owner.

Am I eligible for the Renault Motability Scheme?

Various government mobility supplements can be exchanged for a new Renault through the Renault Motability Scheme.

To be eligible, you will need to have at least 12 months remaining on one of the following allowances:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of the 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 or above with a disability, you are entitled to purchase a new Renault through the Renault Motability Scheme to drive on their behalf.

How does it work?

If you are a motorist with a disability, the Renault Motability Scheme enables you to purchase a New Renault that is suited to your circumstances and requirements. If you are eligible for the Renault Motability Scheme, you will also benefit from included extras such as insurance, breakdown cover and servicing and repairs to give you peace of mind. Most new Renault makes and models can be modified by our highly skilled technicians to include features that improve ease of use and your driving experience. From hand-operated pedal controls to wheelchair hoists, there is a huge range of adaptations that can improve your driving experience.

A member of the team will be on hand to assist you with every aspect of the process, from determining eligibility to choosing the right Renault model for you.

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.
