Our mission at Drive Fuze is to revolutionise the driver experience when it comes to getting out on the road, by making vehicles more accessible than ever. Our car subscription service doesn’t just come with a promise of great service but with an FCA-certified guarantee. Our Financial Conduct Authority certification is a testament to our tireless dedication to the highest standards and regulations within the motor industry.
What does an FCA certification mean?
The FCA operates independently of the UK government to uphold the highest regulatory standards in finance. However, we believe in more than just certification; we believe in responsibility. This isn't just a badge; it's a symbol of trustworthiness. We understand that financial responsibility is paramount, and we encourage customers to act within their means. Our innovative payment system, no-nonsense language, and no-strings-attached monthly agreements ensure that our customers will not be financially trapped when using our services.
Because of this commitment to financial responsibility, Drive Fuze has proven that it is operating honestly, competitively, and fairly – and been awarded an FCA certification as a result.
With certification in hand, we offer a user-friendly platform for all-inclusive vehicle packages. By simplifying the often complicated process of monthly payments, we have redefined how drivers interact with cars by offering choices that outright owners may never have.
Having launched in early 2023, we are already at the forefront of a shifting automotive landscape. As a dynamic tech startup, the Drive Fuze team offers extensive expertise in all forms of car financing, from subscription and leasing to ownership and rental. Our focus is set on constantly developing and upgrading top-tier technology to complement our existing strengths in logistics and asset management – all to provide you with unparalleled service.
Why is Drive Fuze FCA regulated?
Regulation is the cornerstone of the car subscription industry, as it gives drivers peace of mind of knowing that they are protected as customers of this service. At Drive Fuze, we believe in responsibility, and we see this certification as a commitment to your financial security, delivering an innovative and impactful experience.
By strictly adhering to FCA regulations, we reinforce our promise to uphold ethical business practices. This means that your interests are safeguarded, and you can expect nothing less than industry-leading service.
What does this mean for Drive Fuze subscribers?
For our valued subscribers, this certification ensures that your subscription is underpinned by robust regulatory oversight, providing enhanced security on all transactions. It is proof of our transparency and dependability, so, while you continue to enjoy the convenience and flexibility of our car subscription service, you can do so with the confidence that you've chosen a provider that genuinely prioritises your interests and financial well-being.

How can we help?
What is a car subscription?
Car subscriptions are growing more and more popular as an exciting alternative to traditional car ownership or PCP. All of the running costs are included, meaning you’ll never be caught out by unexpected payments. All you have to do is add the fuel and hit the road.
What's included in the Drive Fuze monthly subscription?
Along with your chosen vehicle, you will also benefit from:
- Service and maintenance
- Breakdown cover
- 1,000 miles per month as standard
- Fully comprehensive insurance
- Road tax
What's not included in the Drive Fuze monthly subscription?
The following items are not included in the Drive Fuze monthly subscription and would be subject to additional charges:
- Delivery and collection fees
- Fines or penalties that you receive during your subscription
- Damage outside of BVRLA Fair Wear and Tear guidelines
- Insurance excess in the event of an accident
- Fuel or EV charging
What are the upfront costs of a car subscription and how does the monthly payment work?
At point of ordering, we will take an initial payment which will include:
- An upfront monthly subscription - this is your refundable deposit
- The costs to deliver the vehicle
A breakdown of your initial payment will be presented when you order so you always know what your upfront costs are before you order.
On the day of delivery, we will take the monthly vehicle subscription fee in advance and then every month thereafter until the vehicle is returned.
When the vehicle is returned, we will return the refundable deposit to you less any charges for damages as outlined in your subscription agreement.
How do I sign up or order a vehicle?
You can sign up as part of the vehicle ordering process or sign up and be ready for when you find your perfect vehicle. To sign up without an order, simply click the sign-up button on the top right of our homepage and follow the steps.
To sign up as part of the ordering process, you will need your driving licence, a proof of address and a credit or debit card. To ensure you meet our eligibility criteria and to ensure you are getting the right subscription offer, we will use the data provided in your application to verify your eligibility from a variety of sources.
This includes credit reference agencies and other external organisations which will also help protect Drive Fuze from fraud. We will use this information to verify your identity and ensure the vehicle subscription payment is right for you. We will look for things like CCJs (county court judgements for debt), bankruptcies, insolvencies, and credit searches by debt collection agencies. With that information, we’ll be able to make an affordability assessment.
Though not a hard credit check, a record of our search will be left in your history, but it will not affect your credit rating.
Once you have submitted your driving licence and proof of address details, you will select the day of delivery and submit your credit or debit card details. You will be presented with a Subscription Agreement that outlines all of the conditions of subscription and then that completes the ordering process.
We will then check your documents against our eligibility criteria and notify you of the decision. Once approved, we will contact you to let you know your vehicle is on its way.
PLEASE NOTE: We will not take the initial payment until your eligibility checks have been approved. In the instance we are unable to offer you a vehicle subscription, no payments will be taken and we will contact you to notify you of the decision.
How does delivery work?
As part of the ordering process, you will select a date for your vehicle to be delivered. Our delivery driver will call you on the day of your delivery with an approximate time of arrival. Should anything change the anticipated delivery time, we’ll call to update you.
We’ll need the main subscriber to be present for the delivery of the vehicle. We’ll need to see your driving licence to verify your identity.
PLEASE NOTE: The vehicle cannot be handed over to the main subscriber or in the event that the driving licence is not available or failure to be there when the car arrives will result in an aborted delivery and may be subject to an admin fee.
Will I need to check the car on delivery?
Prior to delivery, our team check every vehicle to ensure its ready for your monthly subscription. On the day of delivery, our driver will check the vehicle again as part of the handover process with you.
We suggest you also check the vehicle to make sure you’re happy with its condition. Should you notice any damage, you can let our driver know or report it to us by calling 0330 118 0947 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I want to amend my delivery?
If you want to amend your delivery, call us on 0330 118 0947 and we will reschedule. If you want to amend within 48 hours of the original delivery date, you may be liable for the original cost of delivery.
What if I want to cancel my delivery?
At any point before the subscription start date, you can cancel the subscription. The Initial Payment paid in advance by will be refunded (refunds can take up to 10 working days to appear in your bank account). We shall retain £100 as a cancellation charge to cover the vehicle administration costs. If you want to cancel, contact us by calling 0330 118 0947 or emailing email@example.com
