All vehicle drivers must have a current and valid licence
Never drive the vehicle after drinking alcohol beyond the legal limit or after taking drugs that may impair physical performance.
For reliable operation of the motor vehicle, you should perform the following checks on a weekly basis:
- Oil and coolant levels (refer to owner’s service manual)
- Tyre condition and pressure
- Windscreen washer fluid level
- Battery fluid level
- Brake fluid level
- Operation of all external lights and indicators
The vehicle should be serviced at the manufacturer’s service intervals (refer to owner’s service manual) or when indicated to do so by the vehicle’s own monitoring systems. It is your responsibility to make sure the vehicle is presented for service or maintenance as and when required. If you don’t do this, it can lead to significant mechanical issues and costs.
The driver is required to regularly clean the vehicle and maintain its appearance. Cleaning entails washing, polishing and vacuuming. These tasks should be undertaken as necessary. Bird droppings will cause damage to the vehicle’s paintwork, so should be removed as soon as possible.
Vehicles returned to us at lease end must be in satisfactory condition relative to the vehicle’s age and distance travelled. To find out more please refer to the Fair Wear and Tear guide.
