To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether driving instructors will remain eligible for the second grant under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme if (a) they choose not to return to providing lessons on 4 July as the covid-19 lockdown restrictions are eased and (b) if their business is significantly lower than before the covid-19 lockdown.

The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) helps those adversely affected by COVID-19. Eligible self-employed driving instructors, and others whose businesses are adversely affected by COVID-19 on or after 14 July will be able to claim a second and final SEISS grant when the scheme reopens for applications in August.

A business would be adversely affected if its income is significantly lower because of COVID-19.

More information about when a business would be adversely affected can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-a-grant-through-the-coronavirus-covid-19-self-employment-income-support-scheme and further examples can be found at
