As the weather begins to warm up and the sun peeks through the clouds, it’s the perfect time to get out and explore what the country has to offer and, with the Motability Scheme, disabled people can do just that.
The latest price list features over 2,000 cars from more than 30 manufacturers, including around 450 with no Advance Payment.
