WARNING - NEW TAX RULES START IN:

SEAT Motability in Braintree, Cambridge and Leicester

Through the Motability scheme, people with mobility difficulties can drive a new SEAT for three years with up to 60,000 miles.

Marshall SEAT proudly champions the scheme and we can help you through the whole process of getting the car you want. With a series of competitive deals on offer, usually significantly reducing the price of the advance payment, you could secure a more luxurious model.

SEAT cars are an ideal brand for Motability purposes thanks to their spacious interior and comfortable seating position. It means they can be easily adapted in a variety of different ways, including stowage, driving and access alterations – most of which come at no extra cost. We’ll take care of these details for you, so you can leave the showroom in your new car feeling satisfied and stress-free.

Whether you are looking for a practical hatchback like the Ibiza, a more sophisticated model such as the Toledo, or a robust SUV, there’s a SEAT on the scheme to suit you.

Lots of maintenance costs are included to take the hassle out of driving and ensure the greatest independence for disabled drivers. These include the road tax, accident and breakdown cover and insurance for up to two named drivers. You don’t even have to worry about servicing or tyre and windscreen replacements – all of these are built-in.

How it works

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair by exchanging their Government funded mobility allowance .

If you receive either:

  • The Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA) or
  • The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP) or
  • The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS) or
  • The Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

... you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme.

Allowances used on the Scheme

To be eligible to join the Motability Scheme, you need to receive one of the following disability benefits:

Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)

This allowance is provided by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and can be used to cover the cost of a Motability lease agreement.

As of 8 April 2015, this allowance will be £57.45 per week.

To lease a car through Motability, you must have at least 12 months’ award length of the HRMC remaining.


War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)

As part of its welfare reform programme, the Government has started to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with a new benefit called Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64. The Motability Scheme will work with PIP in the same way as is it does with DLA. As of 6 April 2015, this allowance will be £57.45 per week.


Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

A new allowance called Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP) was introduced as part of the Welfare Reform Act 2012. Those who receive this allowance will be eligible to join the Motability Scheme. For more information, visit Veterans UK website. As of 8 April 2015, this allowance will be £57.45 per week (this refers to the mobility element, which is the same rate as HRMC DLA and ERMC PIP).

The Attendance Allowance cannot be used to lease a car through Motability.
