We understand, some disabilities can be invisible.

The appointee’s role

Appointees are the hirer of the Motability Scheme vehicle and legally responsible for the lease agreement on the disabled person’s behalf.

Appointees are responsible for ensuring that the Motability vehicle is used for the right purpose and that the disabled person has full access to it.

Full responsibility for any outstanding monies for the Motability lease agreement lie with the Appointee.

The carer

A carer can help the disabled person choose a car and apply to join the Motability Scheme. However they cannot place an application on the disabled person’s behalf as they have not been assigned by the DWP or Veterans UK.
