Motability Adaptations, a welcome addition
The Motability scheme is designed to keep those with disabilities mobile, offering them a range of vehicles and adaptations to tailor to their current needs. This means that as well as a range of brand-new, cutting-edge cars available to choose from, there is also the possibility to specify adaptations for their chosen vehicle.
These adaptations are available to make the driving experience easier, more convenient and whilst keeping you and other road users safer. Adaptations include hand controls, pedal modifications, stowage systems and access aids.
