    Are you Eligible for Motability?

    To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following disability benefits and you must have at least 12 months’ award length remaining. Please note that the Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through the Scheme.

    – Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
    – Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
    – War Pensioner’s Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
    – Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

    Joining the Motability Scheme enables you to enjoy worry-free motoring for 3 years.

    All you have to do is choose a BMW model available on the Motability Car Scheme and we will do the rest. Take the BMW i3: you pay an Advance Payment of £999 and your higher rate mobility allowance will cover the monthly rentals, with no additional costs.

    Our Motability trained and award-winning specialists are here to help you choose your car – either from within our Centre or from the comfort of your own home. We’ll also guide you through the simple process and complete all the paperwork for you. To find out more, please contact us by completing the form and we’ll call you back. Alternatively, call Blackburn BMW on 01254 274444 or Preston BMW on 01772 769976.

    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.

    Prices quoted are correct for applications made 1 January – 31 March 2022 and are subject to change and availability.
    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.
    Fuel economy and CO₂ results for the BMW i3s on the Motability Scheme: mpg n/a. CO₂ emissions 0g/km.
    Electric range 173.4–175.2 miles. Electric energy consumption 16.5–16.3kWh/100km (3.8miles/kWh).
    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
    (post registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. For plug-in hybrid vehicles they were obtained using a combination of battery power and fuel, for battery
    electric vehicles after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. All figures were determined according to a
    new test (WLTP). The CO₂ figures were translated back to the outgoing test (NEDC) and will be used to calculate vehicle tax on first registration. Only compare fuel consumption, CO₂
    and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedure.
