Can Motability help with adapting a car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) for me to drive from my wheelchair?
Motability can provide Charitable Grants towards adaptations so you can drive your Motability Scheme vehicle from your wheelchair or transfer internally from your wheelchair to the driving seat. Motability may also be able to provide Charitable Grants towards complex driving controls for Scheme vehicles.
Please note that applications for Charitable Grants are prioritised to ensure help goes where it is most needed and is available for those who are eligible for the Motability Scheme. Motability considers, among other things, the need to: get to work, drive to a place of study, any caring responsibilities, attending appointments, hospital visits and whether care or support is in place to achieve essential mobility needs. If Motability are unable to provide a Charitable Grant they will look at alternative options which may be available to you.
