Stay independent with Pye Motability

"For the first time I existed as a person not a 'secondary citizen'. I was so impressed that I decided there and then to order the car. The whole process from first meeting to collection flowed smoothly" - Rona.

What is Motability?

The Motability Scheme offers those in receipt of the higher or enhanced mobility living payment the opportunity to keep mobile by exchanging their allowance to lease a new car, wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV), mobility scooter or powered wheelchair.

The Motability Scheme enables us to keep the 200 plus Pye customers who have joined the scheme on the road each year. Our friendly motability experts will skillfully guide you through the maze of advanced payments and adaptations, either in our showroom or as part of a home visit, helping make the process of choosing your brand new vehicle simple and stress free.

How does the scheme work?

Your Motability vehicle includes

  • Mileage allowance of 60,000 miles over 3 years
  • Road tax
  • Fully comprehensive insurance for up to three drivers
  • Full RAC cover
  • All servicing, warranty work and MOTs
  • Tyres (worn or punctured) repaired or replaced
  • Windscreens (chipped or cracked) repaired or replaced

At Pye Motors we offer additional options:

Choice of metallic paint free of charge across all models

Free parking sensors

Free driver assistance/exclusive pack on Fiesta (model dependent)

Your Motability vehicle includes

Firstly you need to be in receipt of one of the following benefits and have at least 12 months of your award remaining.

  • The enhanced rate of the Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Higher rate of Motability component of the disabled living allowance (DLA)
  • The Armed Forces Independence payment (AFIP)
  • A War Pensioners mobility supplement (WPMS)

Our motability experts can then take you through choosing your vehicle with your personal allowance in mind and advise on any possible extra payments given your selection. Once we’ve finalised any adaptations you may need we can then determine a proposed delivery date for you.

Parent or carer?

If you are a relative or carer to someone who claims one of the allowances (recognised by the DWP as an appointee), you can apply on their behalf. The only condition is that the car is used for the benefit of the disabled person. This can involve travelling in the vehicle or a driver running errands for the disabled person.

I don't drive

Even if you do not drive, you can still obtain a vehicle and choose up to three people to drive for you. If you are a parent or carer to a child who receives the allowance, you can also apply. Remember the scheme includes free insurance cover for up to three named drivers.

How does Motability work?

When accepted onto the programme, you assign all or part of your allowance to Motability Operations, the company that runs the Motability car scheme. This is for the duration of the Contract Hire or Hire Purchase agreement for your new car.

This takes place under direct transfer arrangements agreed between Motability and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Once the application is processed, you will receive a letter of confirmation.

Your personal Pye Motability Adviser will be on hand throughout the process to answer any questions.

Specifying modifications

If you have trouble getting in and out of your vehicle, find the steering heavy or the controls difficult to operate then, rest assured, you are not alone. These are some of the most common problems our Motability customers experience. We work with local specialists who can offer solutions to these and many other challenges.

With the right adaptation, we can ensure you keep your independence and make your day-to-day motoring as hassle-free and enjoyable as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to buy your motability car?

Your choice of car is not limited to our entry-level vehicles, we can ensure you don't sacrifice style, performance, and the latest technology. Should you choose a vehicle that is over your allowance for the leasing period then the difference will be assigned as an advance payment which will be paid when you pick up your car. Our dedicated motability vehicle search page indicates what potential advance payments may be due so you can gauge the full cost of the car as you browse.

Our Pye Motability experts can take you through the options, what your allowance includes, and confirm any contributions you would have to make to ensure you can drive the vehicle you want.

How long does it take to get a motability car?

Delivery times can vary depending on the type of vehicle you have ordered and the modifications required. The Pye team will be able to advise an estimated delivery time when you have chosen your preferred option, and will keep you updated as your order progresses.

Please Note : If you already have a vehicle as part of the Motability Car scheme, your current lease agreement needs to have expired before you can collect your new car.
