If you or your partner gets the enhanced rate mobility component of Adult Disability Payment (ADP), you could get the extra benefits and other help listed:
- On this page
- On the I get ADP, what else can I get? page of this guide.
If you receive the enhanced rate of the mobility component, you can use it to lease an adapted car, scooter or wheelchair through the Motability scheme.
Getting your Motability car
You can find out more about how the scheme works on the Motability website or phone Motability on 0300 456 4566.
Losing your Motability car when your Adult Disability Payment (ADP) claim is decided
If you do not qualify for the ADP enhanced rate mobility component, for example, when your award is reviewed or renewed, or you transfer from Personal Independence Payment (PIP), you may have to return your Motability vehicle.
You can read more about what happens when you have to return a Motability vehicle on the Unsuccessful reassessment page of the Motability website.
If you lose your Motability vehicle but you think you should qualify for the enhanced rate mobility component of ADP, make sure you read the Scottish Gov's guide on how to challenge a benefit decision.
Vehicle Tax exemption
If you are getting the enhanced rate of the mobility component, you can be exempt from Vehicle Tax. The exemption has to be for a vehicle that is used by or for you.
You can find out how to apply on the Financial help if you’re disabled: Vehicles and transport page of the Gov.UK website.
You could get a Blue Badge to help you with parking if you have been been awarded mobility points of either 8 points or more in the Moving Around activity, or 12 points in the Planning and Following a Journey activity, or have been awarded enhanced rate mobility (under special rules) without reference to points.
You can find out how to apply for Blue Badge on the Scottish Gov website.
