The BVRLA has published its full 32-page report assessing the impact of terrorism on the UK vehicle rental sector. Co-authored with the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, the report provides an authoritative insight and includes recommendations on how the sector hopes to work with law enforcement organisations and policymakers from across government.

The association has also produced a 6-minute film presented by Dr. Shiraz Maher, a lecturer at King's College London and Deputy Director of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR), who explains the history and current state of vehicles being used in terrorism.

The BVRLA has been accredited by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) to deliver specialist training to increase awareness and provide guidance to the vehicle rental sector on how to tackle terrorist threats. This is available to both members and non-members as is delivered by a former police officer.

The 32-page report ‘Vehicles as weapons: a threat and policy assessment for the UK vehicle rental sector’ can be read in full here on the BVRLA website.

The 6-minute film can be accessed here on the BVRLA website.
