  In January 2017 the migration of disabled people from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to Personal Independence Payment (PIP) commenced; PIP provides the same care and mobility features, just with different criteria for the assessment. The change in criteria has seen a number of disabled drivers left without vital support to purchase a vehicle. So, what does this mean for those drivers who are not eligible for PIP? And, what can West Way Nissan do to help them?

Changes to which cars are available through the Motability Scheme

Further changes to the Motability scheme have seen a reduction in the vehicles that are now available. Manual vehicles over the value of £28,000 and £29,500 for automatic vehicles are no longer eligible on the scheme meaning that manufacturers like AUDI, BMW and Mercedes have either been priced out of the scheme or are no longer eligible. But not to worry if you are still receiving your PIP allowance West Way Nissan has a variety of vehicles available from sleek city cars, family crossovers models to the World’s bestselling 100% electric vehicle; all of which are available on the Motability scheme and available for you to test drive at your convenience.
