Motability offers grants to disabled people who may need help towards the costs of their transportation needs. Our Access to Mobility Grant Funding Programmes have been created to support our vision: that no disabled person shall be disadvantaged due to poor access to transportation.
We currently have the following grant programmes available through Access to Mobility Grant Funding:
- Driving Lessons Grant Programme
- Stopped Allowance Support Programme
- Transitional Support Package
- Additional Transitional Support Grant Programme
- Access to Work Grant Programme
Contact Motability, the Charity, on 0800 500 3186 to be considered for funding through one of our grant programmes.

Driving Lesson Grant Programme
We can provide grants towards the cost of up to 40 hours’ driving lessons through an approved instructor, to help a disabled person pass their driving test.
We can also provide familiarisation lessons to enable you to get used to a new way of driving or a different vehicle.
Stopped Allowance Support
Stopped Allowance Support. In July 2019, we committed to help Scheme customers who lose their higher rate mobility benefit through reassessment, either in transitioning to PIP or in renewing their PIP award, for a period of three years. Please note, Stopped Allowance Support will be ending on 30 September 2022. Find out more here.
Additional Transitional Support (ATS) Grant Programme
Our ATS Grants Programme can support you if, following a disability benefit reassessment, you are no longer eligible for the Motability Scheme and cannot meet the cost of a replacement vehicle or the adaptations you need.
Access to Work Scheme
We provide support to disabled people who are in work or have the offer of work. Support offered through this programme includes grants towards the cost of equipment required for individuals to gain or retain employment.
Transitional Support Grant Programme
We can support Scheme customers who have been unsuccessful in their PIP assessment.
