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.

If you are a customer who is leasing a vehicle, you should request a copy of the BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Standard from your leasing company directly. For more information on returning your leased vehicle, visit our consumer advice page.
