We know that sometimes a tyre will need changing in an emergency situation such as a puncture where the vehicle is not drivable.
Changing tyres by the side of the road can be very dangerous so if you are going to change your own tyre make sure it is safe to do so and if possible drive to a safe location away from moving traffic.
In these situations, we recommend that you call the LP Assist line and we will send The AA out to help.
They will either change the tyre (if you have a spare) or, during opening hours,they will recover you to the nearest LeasePlan approved tyre fitter to enable your tyre to be replaced.
If a spare is fitted please still call your DriverLine and they will arrange for the damaged tyre to be replaced. This should be done as soon as often the spare tyre may be a ‘space saver or skinny’ tyre that is designed to get you home but not designed for you to drive many miles on.
