    FAQS.

    ISN’T BEING PART OF THE SCHEME FAR MORE COMPLEX THAN
    RUNNING MY OWN CAR?

    No. Signing up to the Scheme is simple and we handle the whole process for you.
    It also takes the hassle out of owning a car as insurance as well as servicing and
    maintenance are all covered and once you’ve had the car for three years we will
    replace it with a new one.

    CAN I INSURE MY PARTNER/CARER/OTHER FAMILY MEMBER TO
    DRIVE THE VEHICLE?

    You can have up to two other named drivers on the car under the Motability
    Scheme, so you don’t have to be the sole driver. You, plus one other person can
    be the named driver, or in instances where the person eligible is unable to drive,
    you can have two others (such as a parent and a carer) as the named drivers on
    the vehicle.


    WHAT ARE THE RUNNING COSTS OF A NEW BMW?

    Aside from the cost of fuel, your Motability Scheme lease covers everything you
    need to keep your car running smoothly, including maintenance and servicing,
    so that you can enjoy worry-free motoring without the hassle of unexpected bills
    or repairs and enjoy the unique BMW driving experience.

    Fuel economy and CO₂ results for the BMW range on the Motability Scheme, excluding the BMW i3s range:
    39.2-61.4 combined mpg (7.2-4.6l/100km). CO₂ emissions combined 165-120g/km.

    Figures are for comparison purposes and may not reflect real life driving results which depend on a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted

    and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedure.
