Many of Think Ford's customers who are on the Motability Scheme have adaptations fitted to their cars to help make driving or travelling easier or more comfortable. Below are the different types of adaptations available.
Adaptations generally fall into three categories:
It is strongly recommended that you work out what type of adaptation you may need before you make your final choice of car, as not all adaptations are suitable for every type of car. Our Motability Specialists will be happy to discuss these further with you and can recommend which cars are most likely to work for you with your chosen adaptations. Simply call your nearest Think Ford dealer to arrange an appointment now.
Below are a selection of videos showing you some of the adaptations in practice for driving, stowage and access, but there are many more, so please ask our Motability Specialists for more details.

You are entitled to a brand new vehicle every 3 years. In addition, you'll also benefit from comprehensive insurance, RAC breakdown cover, replacement tyres, replacement windows and windscreens, servicing & maintenance and a 60,000 mile allowance.
If you receive PIP or any of the other eligible allowances, you can put it towards a car on the Motability Scheme. To be eligible to join the scheme, you or the person you care for must receive one of the following Motability allowances and have at least 12 months award length remaining.

Hundreds of adaptations are available on the Motability Scheme, ranging from simple driving controls to person hoists that lift wheelchair users into a standard car. Designed to make your motoring experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible, the adaptations available can help you drive, get in or out of the car, or stow your wheelchair or scooter.
Not every car is suitable for adaptations, so before making a final decision on which car to have, we recommend discussing whether you would require any adaptations with our Motability specialists. If you require any adaptations, they will be able to advise you on the suitability of each vehicle and help find the car that meets your individual requirements.
