If you have low mileage, or lots of adaptations on your vehicle, you might be able to extend your lease for up to two more years.

If you're eligible, you'll see this option in your online account once you're in the last three months of your lease.

We'll also explain your options in the letter we send to you around three months before the end of your lease. So you know, if you're already in an extended lease, we will not be able to extend it again.

If you've already extended your lease for two years or more and you want to keep your car for longer, call our customer services team on 0300 456 4566 to discuss your options.

You'll still need an MOT test if you extend your lease. You'll need to get this done within the last three months of your lease and before you hand your vehicle back or extend your lease.

We recommend you book your MOT in for at least one month before it's due, to allow time for anything to be fixed before your MOT expires.

You'll also need to book another MOT test every 12 months.

This means if your lease is extended for two years, you might need to get another two MOT tests before you hand your vehicle back.

The cost of your MOT test is included in your Scheme lease.

If you have a scooter or powered wheelchair

Due to the short timescales involved in getting a new product, we generally do not extend leases on  scooters or powered wheelchairs.

However, if your allowance is due to end in the next 12 months and you’d prefer to wait until you’ve had your new award confirmed, you can ask to extend your current lease. Please call us on 0300 456 4566 to talk about this.
