Mazda Motability

As an established and respected automotive dealer in the south east, we at Drift Bridge are proud to be a Motability partner. At our Croydon Mazda showroom, we have a selection of vehicles available for Motability customers to view and test drive, as well as specially trained staff on hand to provide guidance and advice.

What is Motability?

A government-backed programme, the Motability Scheme enables drivers with a disability to retain their independence by allowing them to exchange their monthly mobility payments for a brand new vehicle of their choice.

The lease on your Mazda Motability car covers far more than the vehicle itself – Vehicle Excise Duty, breakdown cover, insurance and aftersales care are all part of the package, offering you a worry-free and simple motoring experience. All you need to do is pay for fuel.

Am I eligible?

Customers who are eligible for the Motability Scheme are those who receive one of the following disability benefits, of which at least 12 months’ award length must be remaining:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

If you receive one of these benefits but do not drive, or would prefer not to, you can nominate up to two people to do so on your behalf. These nominated drivers must use the vehicle only for your needs, not their own.

How does Motability work?

The Motability Scheme exchanges part or all of your state aid for the cost of a three-year lease on your chosen Mazda. The cost is often completely covered by your payment, although more expensive models may require an Advance Payment – an upfront charge that you’ll need to pay to secure the vehicle.

You’ll start by choosing the car you’d like. Our Mazda Motability specialists can help with this if need be, pointing out the features and benefits of the various models in our range. Once you’ve found a vehicle that meets your needs, you can specify any adaptations you may require. These include alterations to storage, access and drivability, and many of them can be installed free of charge.

Our team will then help you fill in the necessary paperwork and provide an estimated delivery date for the vehicle. On the day of delivery, simply visit our Croydon Mazda showroom to collect your car, bringing with you the PIN that you have been assigned and your driving licence. Should your vehicle require an Advance Payment, please be ready to settle this upon collection too.
