BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Guides

The aim of the BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Guide is, firstly, to provide information to drivers about looking after a leased or financed vehicle so that end of contract charges can be avoided and, secondly, to provide an industry-wide, accepted standard that defines fair wear and tear on vehicles when they are returned at the end of a lease or finance agreement.

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.
