Repair & Replacement of tyres

You do not have to worry when it comes to tyre repair and replacement. Tyres worn or impaired during regular use can be replaced at no additional cost as part of the mobility scheme. The principle of 'fair use' ensures that you would not pay a fee for:

  • Reparations of puncture
  • Balance of Wheel
  • Replacement of tyres which have been stolen or vandalised

How to reserve an appointment for Kwik Fit

If there is a problem with one or more of your tyres, it's best to reserve an appointment with Kwik Fit in advance to reduce long waiting times. Using your car registration and tyre size, this can be done online. For pre-booking appointments and finding local centres, the online booking service is perfect. You can also be confident that the appropriate tyres will be in stock when you book in advance.

What do I need to know when it comes to tyres?

  • Tyres need to be replaced on 75 percent of the contact surface when the tread depth falls to 1.6 mm. This is a condition that is legal. When the depth drops to 2.0 mm, Kwik Fit will replace tyres on Motability Scheme vehicles. In compliance with maximum safety requirements, tyres will always be fitted.
  • If your Motability vehicle doesn't come with a spare wheel, don't worry. A complete breakdown service and tyre repair comes with your mobility kit.
  • Where required, make the most of emergency inflation kits. It is possible to substitute these upon request. Contact Kwik Fit if you aren't happy using the kit.
  • If you live in a remote area prone to snow, try using snow tyres.
  • Call Kwik Fit Tyreline on 0330 123 1531 if you need to change the tyres when abroad.

Using other firms

If, for whatever reason, you are unable to use Kwik Fit, you will be able to use another tyre supplier and later demand the money back from Motability Operations Ltd.
