The Motability Scheme enables parents of children with exceptional health care needs to exchange their higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance to obtain a new car, powered wheelchair or scooter.   (It is not available to those awarded the lower rate mobility component). The ‘motability package’ includes insurance, servicing, tyres and breakdown cover and removes many of the stresses of car maintenance.
