Offers for Emergency Services Workers & Teachers

Here at Hodgson Motor Group we want to give back to those who serve the community. Our emergency services staff and teachers work tirelessly to ensure the people of Tyne and Wear are safe and cared for, and that our children are educated.

To recognise the great work that these people do, we’re delighted to offer those who are eligible for a DDS, Blue Light card or CSMA card special, preferential discounts. Customers will need to independently apply for the card that’s relevant to their profession, and once issued, can take advantage of the deals we’re offering.

Am I eligible?

Personnel from a range of sectors can benefit from our discounts, provided they hold the appropriate card. Eligibility for each card is as follows:

Boundless by CSMA

  • Serving and Retired Civil Servants
  • Serving and Retired Public Servants

Defence Discount Service

  • Serving Military personnel – Tri-Services (Army, Royal Navy, & RAF)
  • MOD Employees – Those working for and paid by the MOD itself

What discounts are available?

When you purchase a brand new car from our Mazda and Suzuki franchises, you can enjoy a preferential rate on the model. Depending on the vehicle you choose, you could get up to 20% off – a significant saving that enables you to get behind the wheel of your perfect car. Most models are available on the scheme, and you can check the discount with our friendly team before you commit.

How do I obtain the offer?

When you have been issued with a DDS, Blue Light or CSMA card, there are two ways in which you can obtain the discount you’re entitled to. If you prefer to browse online, simply go to our website, select the vehicle of your choice and fill out the enquiry form, stating that you are a cardholder. Alternatively, pop into your nearest Hodgson dealership – we’re in Newcastle and Gateshead – and enquire directly with a member of staff.

In both instances, your query will be directed to a team member who is familiar with the process. They will then be able to tell you the amended price.
