how old do you have to be to be entitled to a motability car?
"Are you eligible for a Motability car?
To join the Motability Car Scheme, you must be receiving either:
* Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA), or
* War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS).
Plus... with the Contract Hire package you don't need to drive. You can nominate up to two drivers who may be friends or relatives, and parents or carers can apply on behalf of a child aged three years and upwards.
Please note: If you choose the Contract Hire scheme you must have at least 12 months' award length remaining. For customers choosing to buy a car with a Hire Purchase agreement, it is normally expected that you will be receiving the allowance for the full length of the agreement.
Proposed drivers must not have any serious driving convictions, disqualifications, or endorsements within the last five years. There are also some restrictions on drivers under 25 and those with provisional licences. "
I'm not going to use motability, though. I think, for the most part, it's a rip off.
