The rules around the UK

Here's a quick reminder of rules around the UK

Repair, maintenance and tyre

If you have a maintained contract you must use our Service Booking line – 0344 371 8033 – to book work. This helps to control the service slots, so we can prioritise key workers and those most in need, while making sure your job is handled promptly. Booking in directly with the garage will hamper our efforts to allocate the slots fairly, so we may reallocate bookings if they are not made through our Service Booking line.

For your safety and the safety of others, please keep your vehicle in a roadworthy condition – you can read the Government’s guidance here about how to check your vehicle is safe to drive.

Some garages are restricting 'while you wait' servicing.

Customer services

You can still call or email us (our contact details are below). We're doing as much as we can to support our customers, especially front-line teams and their vehicles, so we would also like to ask for your patience and understanding if it takes longer to respond to your query.

Arrow downI need to take my vehicle abroad. Am I allowed to?

Please check the latest travel advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The government has published guidance for British people travelling and living overseas during (COVID-19): Travel advice: coronavirus (COVID-19).

Leasing customers wishing to take their vehicle abroad must request a VE103 which proves to the authorities that you are permitted to drive a LeasePlan owned vehicle.

Please request Foreign Travel Documents 2-4 weeks before you plan to travel abroad (depending upon time of year), please note there may be a small charge to provide documents depending upon your contract.

Request foreign travel documents

It is advisable to contact your insurer to make sure you're covered to drive in all the places you'll visit, and to find out the process should there be an incident. For travel to some countries you’ll also be provided with a Green Card which serves as proof of insurance.

If you are driving in France you may also need to request an additional emissions certificate such as Crit’Air and if travelling in Germany an Umweltplakette, may be required.

New rules also mean that you will also need to display a UK sticker on the back of your vehicle (instead of GB identifier).

As well as a valid passport, you will also need to remember to check your driving licence is valid and up to date.

Arrow downI am now working from home. How will you notify me about a Penalty Charge Notice?

Our industry body, the BVRLA, is in discussions with many of the main issuing authorities and private parking companies. It has called on the government to ensure a pragmatic approach will be taken to late payment or the late receiving of driver details by authorities and private parking companies. If this is an issue for you, we suggest contacting the authority directly and explaining the circumstances.
