The ultimate guide to Renault Motability

Get a brand new Renault car in exchange for your mobility allowance with Motability

The Renault Motability Scheme ensures that everyone can get on the road. We’ve partnered with this National Charity to offer our cars to those looking to become more mobile. You’ll get on the road in a car specifically suited to you, with a brand new Renault every three years. With Renault Retail Motability, everything you need to get behind the wheel safely is included. You’ll get insurance, breakdown cover, wheel replacements and more at no extra cost.

Explore the latest Renault Motability offers to find your dream car. From the classic Clio to the practical Trafic Passenger, there’s a model to suit all needs. Our trained staff can guide you through the process, offering help at every step of the way. Get in touch today to learn how you can exchange part or all of your mobility allowance for a brand new Renault car.

Here at Renault Retail, we make applying for Motability as simple and smooth as possible. Depending on which car you choose, you may have to give an advance payment and your monthly PIP in exchange for a car. Some models don’t require an advance payment, and the monthly payment may be less than your weekly allowance. This means you get to keep the difference.

If you receive the following, you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme:

Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)

Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)

War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

You must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining to lease a car through Motability and there’s no upper age limit. Only the higher or enhanced rate of the mobility allowance is used.

As of 8th April 2019, the weekly allowance rates are as follows:

Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance; Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment;
Armed Forces Independence Payment: £61.20
War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement: £68.35

Two named drivers are included with your lease, including yourself, family, carers or friends. You can also add a third driver for an additional cost. This gives you the option to get a lease even if you don’t drive yourself. Typically, nominated drivers should live within a five-mile radius of the leaseholder’s address and all named drivers need to agree to the Motability Scheme’s terms and conditions. Only one nominated driver under 21 is permitted. This can be you or someone who lives at your address. Those under 25 can only drive cars in the lower ABI insurance groups, of one to 16, and with a brake horsepower rating of 115NHP or less. Proposed drivers with certain convictions, disqualifications or endorsements (points) within the last five year will not be allowed

If you're looking to keep your costs as low as possible, there’s a range of Renault cars available to lease for less than your weekly mobility allowance (current £61.20 for DLA and PIP)

You'll be paid the remainder of your allowance by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) The amount you keep is likely to increase each year when the DWP increases the allowance rate, usually in April.

These models are available at a fixed weekly amount for the full three years of your agreement. If you choose these models for Renault Motability, advanced payments are also waived, drastically reducing costs.

To work out how much you'll keep, take your current allowance rate, £61.20, and subtract the weekly rental. For example, if the car you're interested in has a weekly rental of £48, you will keep £13.20 per week. This is based on your current allowance rate of £61.20 and the allowance you keep over a period of three years - 156 weeks.
