The BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Guide for Cars, including the Standard

Fair wear and tear occurs when normal usage causes deterioration to a vehicle. It is not to be confused with damage which occurs as a result of a specific event or series of events such as impact, inappropriate stowing of items, harsh-treatment, negligent acts or omissions. BVRLA members are able to obtain copies of these guidelines for their customers.
