The Motability Scheme is a national mobility charity set up to help disabled motorists remain independent by supplying them with a brand new vehicle. Duff Morgan SEAT is an active supporter of the charity, and our involvement sees us deliver cars and all related support services to eligible members.
The scheme swaps your government-funded mobility allowance for a three-year lease on a brand new car. You will pay a fixed monthly amount, which also covers servicing and maintenance, road tax, insurance, breakdown assistance, and windscreen repairs and replacement.
PIP is the new allowance which is gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64. Like DLA, PIP has two components: a daily living component and a mobility component. Each component has two rates of payment: a ‘standard rate’ and an ‘enhanced rate’ which will be the same amount as the DLA. You can lease a Motability Scheme car, scooter or powered wheelchair by using the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP, similar to the Higher Rate Mobility Component of DLA.
The parent or guardian of an allowance recipient aged three years or older can also apply to receive a car to use on their behalf. For more details on eligibility, please click here to visit the scheme website.
Joining is straightforward, as the Motability specialists at Duff Morgan SEAT will lead you through every stage of the application process and handle all the paperwork on your behalf. They can also check that you are eligible if you are unsure.
All you need to do is inform your Motability adviser. They will recommend the SEAT model that is best suited to the necessary adaptations and will arrange them through our supplier network.
Yes, up to two named drivers can be added to your agreement, including yourself, a family member or a friend. A third can also be added at an extra cost if required.
A wide range of SEAT’s most popular models is available, including the Mii, Ibiza and Altea. You can also choose the trim that stays within your budget and equips the car with all the kit you need. Be sure to view our Motability offers page for all the deals that relate to these vehicles.
