Established in 1967, the BVRLA is the UK trade body for companies engaged in vehicle rental, leasing and fleet management.
BVRLA members register around 50% of all new cars, vans and trucks sold each year and are responsible for a combined fleet of over five million vehicles, that’s 1-in-8 cars, 1-in-5 vans and 1-in-4 trucks operating on UK roads. These fleets are leading the charge to decarbonise road transport. The BVRLA’s Plug-in Pledge will see the sector registering 400,000 battery electric vehicles (BEVs) per year by 2025, making it responsible for 80% of new battery electric car and van sales.
On behalf of its 1,000+ member organisations, the BVRLA works with governments, public sector agencies, industry associations and key business influencers across a wide range of road transport, environmental, taxation, technology and finance-related issues. The vehicle rental and leasing industry supports over 465,000 jobs, adds £7.6bn in tax revenues and contributes £49bn to the UK economy each year.
BVRLA membership provides customers with the reassurance that the company they are dealing with adheres to the highest standards of professionalism and fairness.
The association achieves this by maintaining industry standards and regulatory compliance via its mandatory Codes of Conduct, inspection and governance programme and government-approved Alternative Dispute Resolution service. To support this work, the BVRLA promotes best practice through its extensive range of training, events and information-sharing activities.
The BVRLA produces three annual corporate publications: The Annual Review provides and overview of the association's deliverables at the year end, the Annual Report publishes the association's statutory financial statement and the BVRLA Business Plan sets out the association's strategic priorities.
