We don’t believe that a disability should stop anyone enjoying motoring, so here at Corkills Motor Group, we are proud to offer Volkswagen Motability vehicles. The Motability Scheme is an all-inclusive package, allowing anyone in receipt of either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HMRC DLA), the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP), the War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or the Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP), to use their mobility allowance to lease a vehicle from us.
The scheme package wraps all your motoring needs into one agreement. It includes a new Volkswagen vehicle every 3 years, a full service agreement, full accident and breakdown cover, vehicle insurance and road license, plus two named drivers. So even if you can’t drive, someone else can do so on your behalf.
Whether it's a nimble city car like the Volkswagen Polo or a powerful SUV like the Tiguan that you want, our specialists have undergone extensive training to ensure they provide accurate information and detailed advice to our Motability customers. They can help you select a vehicle and advise on suitable modifications that are tailored to your specific needs. This service is available at both our Wigan and Southport sites.

Get £750 when you take delivery of your Motability car
The Motability Scheme is giving back to their valued customers, and as of March 2023, when you receive your car, you get a free, one-off £750 New Vehicle Payment!
You can use this £750 however you wish - spend it on fuel for your car, put it towards your energy bills or save it - the choice is yours!
Motability introduced the New Vehicle Payment back in February 2022 at £250. But now it’s been raised to £750. If you received £250 back in 2022, you will be receiving an extra £500 this year to make up the difference.
Am I eligible for Motability’s New Vehicle Payment?
To be eligible for the Motability New Vehicle Payment, you must either be new to the scheme, and taking delivery of your first-ever Motability car.
When you take out a new lease or extend your existing one, you will receive an additional payment, bringing the total received up to £750. So for example, had you previously received £250, you would receive an additional £500.
How do I get the Motability New Vehicle Payment?
The brilliant thing about the New Vehicle payment is that you don’t have to do anything! There are two ways to receive it:
Via cheque. This can take a number of weeks to arrive.
Via bank transfer. If your bank details are in your Motability account you will receive payment within a few days of receiving your car.
