Your journey to finding the right car to suit your requirements
The Motability scheme is a government funded scheme which allows motorists to lease a new car every three years. Skipton Ford can work with you to adapt depending on your requirements and motorists can supplement the allowance towards a new car if they wish.
Skipton Ford are pleased to support the Motability Scheme and offer a broad range of adapted vehicles to meet your requirements.
We work hard to help you and your family become more mobile and enjoy the independence of owning a car. To find out more about how the Motability scheme can help you keep reading and to see our bespoke offers, simply click here.
Many of the modified vehicles we offer do not need any advance payment, and typical packages include:
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) can help you with some of the extra costs if you have a long term ill-health or disability.
The amount you get depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself.
You may not realise you are eligible for Motability. If you, or someone you care for is receiving one of the following allowances you will be able to exchange it for a Motability car at Skipton Ford.

If you’re not sure which one would suit you best, contact our Motability Specialist who will be more than happy to help you choose. They'll also be able to process the application and organise all the paperwork for you.
This is probably the most straightforward and flexible option. You simply assign your allowance to Motability and get a brand new car every three years. Your allowance covers most of the running costs. All you have to do is fill your car with fuel.
Your agreement includes:
There are many vehicles available at no additional cost to your allowance, but if you do want a higher specification vehicle or one of our larger cars, you will need to pay an additional one-off ‘Advance Payment’ when you sign for your new vehicle.
