The BVRLA is now taking pre-orders for the new version of the LCV Fair Wear & Tear Guide, due to be introduced on Friday 03 September.
The deadline for orders of hard copy guides is 31 August, to ensure they can be posted by the launch date, as the new version will be dispatched on 02 September. Both digital and print editions are available from the BVRLA, co-branded to include the customer’s logo.
Changes have seen the new standard more closely aligned with the BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Guide for Commercial Vehicles, recognising vans’ evolving roles. Key changes include:
- Removal of reference to minibuses as these are now covered within the Commercial Vehicle guide
- Removal of limits of number of dents and scratches within tolerance sizes
- Increase in tolerance for scratches, from 25mm to 50mm
- Windscreen and glass updated to match MOT standard, as in the BVRLA Fair Wear & Tear Guide for Cars.
Copies of the new guide can be ordered via the BVRLA website, though should other BVRLA guides be required at the same time, it’s recommended to email for an order form so that postage costs can be combined.
For BVRLA members that already subscribe to the LCV guide via an e-licence, links will be updated on launch date. To purchase an e-licence, email email@example.com for more information.
