Can I have more than two drivers?

With a Motability Contract Hire lease you can propose up to two drivers free of charge, one of whom may be the Hirer. Under certain circumstances, a third driver may be included for which an additional premium will be payable.

A charge of 219 is payable to provide cover for a third driver for the full period of your 3 year lease, however if you have less than 3 years remaining on your lease, this charge may be lower. Please contact our Customer Services Department who will confirm the charge applicable to you.

Please note however, a third driver may only be included for the period you have remaining on your policy.

If you would like to request a third driver, you will need to call RSA Motability Customer Services Department on 0500 37 37 37.
