smart Motability Scheme
As proud supporters of the Motability Scheme, smart is committed to helping disabled people get on the road again. The Motability Scheme is a national charity that is dedicated to helping disabled people get more mobile and enjoy their freedom. An affordable way of getting back on the road, the scheme allows those with disabilities to lease a brand-new smart car once every three years in exchange for their government-funded mobility allowance. But that’s not all you can expect to benefit from. On the scheme, you are also entitled to comprehensive car insurance, full accident and breakdown cover, replacement tyres and windscreens and more. There are also a range of adaptations and optional extras available to make your smart car unique to you. Discover more information at your local smart dealership in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.

Visit your local smart dealership for a test drive, and once you’re happy with the vehicle you’ve chosen, we’ll complete the order for you. It's easy!
Who is eligible for smart Motability?
You can utilise any of the following government funded mobility allowances towards a brand-new smart car:
- Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC)

- War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

The scheme is not exclusive to the driver if the claimant is under 16-years-of-age. Instead, their parent, guardian or carer can qualify on their behalf. For more details on eligibility and how the scheme works, please visit the Motability Scheme website.
smart Motability adaptations
With hundreds of adaptations available on the Motability Scheme, from simple driving controls to person hoists for lifting wheelchair users, you can get back enjoying your freedom on the road. Designed to help your drive, get in or out of the car, or stow your wheelchair or scooter, adaptations can make a whole world of difference.
The simplest and most cost-effective way to arrange for your adaptations to be made is to take care of it at the same time as ordering your vehicle. This way, when your smart car is delivered it will have the adaptations already fitted, so you can get back on the road in no time at all. Some adaptations even come at no extra cost.
Our team of Motability specialists can help you establish what you find difficult with your current vehicle. Some issues can easily be solved by choosing the right model, such as an automatic gearbox for example. Our friendly team can work with you to find a vehicle that meets your individual motoring needs.
Adaptations are designed to make motoring easier and more comfortable. However, not all adaptations are suitable for every type of vehicle due to the compatibility of the car and the adaptation. It is important to bear in mind what adaptations you need before you choose your smart car.
Here are some adaptations that you could consider, which may suit your needs:
