Electric car club pilot - Oxfordshire
An Oxfordshire wide car sharing pilot scheme launched in April 2023 making 14 new electric vehicles (EV) available for people to hire on an hourly or daily basis.
The scheme gives people the chance to access an EV when they need one, without the expense of owning or leasing one outright. Car clubs can make it much more affordable for people who don’t drive every day and provide real-world experience of driving electric without a long-term commitment.
Further information can be found on the Oxfordshire County Council website.
Can I use a foreign driving licence?
Yes. If you have a non-UK licence, you can join Co-Wheels. However please be aware that the process for checking your licence is a little different to the standard procedure.
Full details are available on their joining with a foreign driving licence page.
