We aim to start with an informal discussion to see if your needs fit well with what the car club can offer you. This could be done as:
- A discussion with the Members Co-ordinator
- A meeting with a few existing members – we sometimes try to coordinate this to meet several potential new members at once
Then if you wish to join, you are invited to our next car club meeting. This offers a chance to learn how the car club works, for members to meet you and vice versa. If you would like to join, then existing members make a decision at that meeting on whether you become a member of the group. You should bring your driving licence (has to have been issued in England, Scotland or Wales) to the group meeting so members can check it. If you join, we will need to check your licence details online using a DVLA code, to meet requirements of our insurers.
New members are accepted on an initial probationary period. This lasts until they have attended at least four group meetings (not counting the meeting where you join), making the period at least six months. We have this rule so that we all know each other as a group. Probationary members are not expected to take on any responsibilities associated with running the club.
After joining, a member of our admin group will share with you the details you need to take part in the car club: how to book a vehicle, how to make payments, how to join our email list, etc.
