A range of adaptations and optional extras are also available, so you can own a SEAT that is unique to your needs. Learn more information at your local SEAT dealership in Hertfordshire.

The Motability Scheme is not exclusive to the driver. A parent, guardian or carer can qualify on behalf of the claimant if they are under the age of 16. For more information on eligibility, please visit the Motability Scheme website.
With hundreds of adaptations available on the Motability Scheme, you can get the most out of your brand-new SEAT. From simple driving controls to person hoists for lifting wheelchair users into a standard car, all adaptations are designed to help you drive, get in or out of the car, or stow your wheelchair or scooter. It enables you to get back on the road and enjoy your motoring experience.
The most simple and cost-effective way of arranging for your adaptations to be made is to take care of it at the same time as ordering your vehicle. Then your SEAT will be delivered to you with the adaptations already fitted. Some adaptations even come at no extra cost.
Our Motability specialists can help establish what it is that you find difficult with your current vehicle, so that you can get back to making the most of your time on the road. There are some issues that may be solved as easily as choosing the right model, like a SEAT with automatic transmission or a flat-entry boot. We will work with you to find the perfect vehicle for your motoring needs.
All adaptations are designed with your needs in mind, so you can benefit from a comfortable and more pleasant experience. However, it is important to bear in mind what adaptations you need before you choose which SEAT you would like. Not all adaptations are suitable for every type of vehicle because of the compatibility of the car and the adaptation.
