Contract Hire Scheme
A car contract hire scheme is available to anyone who has been awarded the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC-DLA) or the War Pensioners Mobility Supplement (WPMS) for one year or more. No credit rating is needed to secure a vehicle as the benefit is paid directly by the Government. The person in receipt of the HRMC-DLA or WPMS does not need to be able to drive the car; up to two named people can be nominated to drive for them as named drivers i.e. parent or a carer of the recipient.
The Contract Hire agreement is based on a fixed-term of three years and is available on new cars only.

For new car sales, the vehicle is sold to the customer by the dealer at 3% discount off the Recommended Retail Price of the car.For used car sales the vehicle is sold at the market price.
