The Motability Scheme is a government initiative that enables motorists with a disability and in receipt of selected mobility benefits to exchange their allowance for a lease on selected new cars. The scheme - which has been running for more than 40 years - also provides fully comprehensive insurance, road tax, breakdown cover and more, meaning eligible motorists will be able to benefit hugely from the scheme.

Both Ocean Group and MINI are keen supporters of the scheme and will work to help you find the perfect model at an affordable cost. Our team of Motability experts will be able to guide you through the entire application process, making investing in a new MINI easier than ever. In order to qualify for the scheme, however, it’s important to note that you should have at least 12 months’ allowance remaining on one of the following:

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

Once your eligibility has been confirmed, we’ll be able to help you source the ideal model for your needs. Not only that, but we’ll arrange for delivery and make any special adaptations that you may require, such as storage or accessibility requirements.

To get started with searching for your new Motability Scheme MINI, contact the team at Ocean Group MINI today. We’ll be happy to help you find the perfect model with all the adaptations you need. Pick up the phone or submit an online enquiry form today.
