Young drivers People aged under 25 are allowed to drive Motability cars, and we also offer some extra support to these young drivers. Recipients of the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance can learn to drive aged 16. Drivers aged 16-24 (whether yourself or a named driver) are offered PASS PLUS, a free six hour course from the AA. It has been specifically designed to teach young drivers to drive more safely and can reduce the insurance excess once the course has been completed successfully. Just ask your dealer about PASS PLUS when you order your car.
Whilst being eligible to drive a car leased from Motability, drivers aged under 25 (whether yourself or a named driver) can only drive cars up to the ABI (Association of British Insurers) car group 18 (1 to 50 scale). For more information speak to your dealer or visit www.thatcham.org/abigrouprating
