Can someone else drive for me?
Leasing a car through the Motability Scheme includes insurance for up to two named drivers – these can be yourself, friends, family or carers. A third driver can also be added for an additional cost.
All proposed drivers are subject to the Motability Scheme’s policies on who can drive your car, and must also meet RSA Motability’s (RSAM) eligibility criteria regardless of whether they are added at application or during your lease. Only drivers listed as permitted drivers on the Certificate of Motor Insurance are insured to drive your Motability Scheme car.
Remember, the car must be used by, or for the benefit of, the disabled person. This does not mean that the disabled person needs to be in the car for every journey. In practice, this means other named drivers in the household can use the car for shopping and other routine activities, as long as the disabled person will benefit.
