Terms of Insurance
I am over 21 and under 86 years of age, and I have held a full, valid UK driving licence applicable to the vehicle for at least 12 months. I have not accumulated more than 9 penalty points in the last 3 years, nor have I been disqualified from driving in the last 5 years. I confirm that, if I have any health condition or disability that could affect my ability to drive safely, I have notified the DVLA, and the DVLA has authorised me to drive. I have given consent for the dealership to carry out a driving licence check and I understand that should I incur any pending or new endorsements or restrictions during the period of loan, failure to inform the dealership immediately may invalidate the insurance. I will pay any charges for loss/damage as a result of not using the correct fuel. I accept that these terms also apply to any additional authorised driver.
Conditions of Loan
Anthony Betts Motor Group (the dealership) loans this vehicle subject to the following conditions:
1.The vehicle is insured on a comprehensive basis by the dealership from the time it is collected by me or delivered to me, whilst it is in my custody and control and until such time it is returned by me to the dealership or dealership representative. I agree to pay an insurance excess of £250 to the dealership in the event of any accidental damage, which will be refunded if recovered from a third party. I acknowledge the policy does not cover personal effects or my own personal injury, which remain at my own risk.
2.I accept full responsibility for any uninsured loss or damage however such loss or damage is caused. In the event of an accident I will report the incident immediately to the dealership and will complete an accident report form at the dealership. Any necessary repair work will be carried out by the dealership and paid by me upon receipt of invoice.
3.Iaccept that any motoring or traffic offences, toll or parking charges, penalties and fines arising in relation to the vehicle for the duration of the loan are my sole responsibility under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988, and/or any subsequent relevant legislation. I will indemnify the dealership forthwith for any penalties, fines, legal fees, cost, interest or other charges paid by them in relation to any such motoring or traffic offences or toll or parking charges.

I also agree to this charge if I fail to correctly inform the dealership. I hereby irrevocably agree to any such charges including an administration fee of £25+VAT being charged to me and for my details to be passed to the relevant third party.
