Driving adaptations can make a huge difference to your motoring experience. They may enable a person to drive where it would otherwise not be possible, and can help with speed control, steering and signalling.
If you think you need an adaptation, check out these videos of the most popular adaptations and how they work to see how they could improve your travelling experience. The Motability web site also has a great section on adaptations available through the scheme.
For further information speak to our adaptations team on the number below.

An adaptation is a device which has been fitted to enable or improve your driving or travelling experience.
Most customers organise their adaptations at the same time as ordering their car as part of what we call the Motability Managed Adaptations Programme.
If you had adaptations fitted after your lease started then you will need to arrange and pay for any maintenance required directly with your adaptations installer.
If you’ve never driven a car with adaptations, you should consider visiting a Mobility Centre.
There are 17 Mobility Centres across the UK, each employing qualified occupational therapists and driving instructors. They will provide you with an independent assessment, as well as practical driving experience in a car fitted with adaptations, to help you understand the types of adaptations you may need to improve your driving or travelling experience. Call the Motability Customer Services team on 0300 456 4566 if you would like to arrange a Mobility Centre assessment before speaking to an adaptation installer or dealer.
