Our purpose is to provide our customers access to affordable, worry‑free mobility.

Motability Operations was established in 1978 to deliver the Motability Scheme, under contract to Motability the national charity (which is responsible for oversight of the Scheme).

We provide mobility to almost 649,000 customers with a wide range of different disabilities, providing an opportunity to achieve freedom and independence.

As we do not pay shareholder dividends we can focus purely on delivering for our customers, with profits available for reinvestment to support their current and future needs. In addition, we may also donate to Motability (the Charity) supporting their broader aim to enhance the lives of disabled people with transportation solutions.

How we deliver the Scheme

We provide mobility to nearly 649,000 customers who receive the Government’s mobility allowance. Through integration of manufacturers, dealers and other suppliers, we provide customers with worry-free, affordable mobility to meet their individual needs.

Investing in the electric vehicle transition

The transition of our customers to electric vehicles over the next few years requires careful planning and support; we are focused on ensuring that our customers are not left behind on this transition. We aim to ensure that customers have access to suitable, affordable vehicles, with the availability of cost-effective and accessible charging options.
