ŠKODA Motability

It’s easy with Motability! You choose the car, we do the rest.

Heritage ŠKODA, located in Bristol, Gloucester, Weston-super-Mare, and Yeovil, is the leading provider of ŠKODA Motability cars across Gloucestershire, Somerset & Dorset. The mobility cars scheme enables disabled people to become independent by helping recipients of mobility allowances who qualify for Motability to exchange their entitlement to lease a new ŠKODA Motability car.

Motability is a national charity, set up on the initiative of the Government in 1977, to assist disabled people with their mobility needs simply by using their government-funded mobility allowances. If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement, getting a new car is easier and more affordable than ever. Through Motability, you simply turn part or all of your allowance into the ŠKODA of your choice. Many Motability car deals include a choice of special Motability Adaptions, many at no extra cost, and also with no advance payment.

Popular ŠKODA Motability Cars

Among the more popular ŠKODA Motability cars are the ŠKODA KODIAQ ŠKODA Yeti, ŠKODA Superb and ŠKODA Octavia Motability Cars.

No waiting lists. No credit checks. No assessments required.

How much does it cost on my allowance?

Can I join the scheme if I’m over 65?

Yes – if you receive the HRMC (Higher Rate Mobility Component) of the DLA (Disability Living Allowance) or the WPMS (War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement), and have 12 months or more remaining on your allowance, then you are eligible to join the scheme and can choose your car today!

Will I get my advance payment back?

We’re afraid not – the advanced payment isn’t a deposit. It is the amount paid to ŠKODA either before or on the day you collect your car. It is a one off, non-refundable payment.
