Car Club

  • Co-wheels is a national car hire scheme, with some vehicles located on certain Oxford Brookes campuses. Their cars are available across the city and can be booked online or over the phone.

    How much does it cost?

    You just need to pay a one off fee of £25 (see special offer for student below) and then pay a monthly fee of £5 if you don’t hire a car. This is like a membership fee, except if you make a booking that costs at least £5, you effectively don't pay it!

    Car hire starts at £4.50 for an hour, or £31.50 for the day

    Special offer for students

    As an Oxford Brookes student you get free student membership (usually £25) and £10 worth of driving credit. Get your code for free student membership

    Is there a minimum age limit?

    As long as you have held a full driving licence for a minimum of 12 months, and have no more than 6 points on your licence, (0 points if 21 or under), you can join (some other exclusions apply, so if in doubt, give them a call to check).

  • If you have a non-UK licence you will need to confirm if you are a UK resident or a student, how long you have been living in the UK, and if you have any penalties on your licence. This can be done by supplying a copy of a recent utility bill to Co-wheels.

    You will also need to send your licence to the Co-wheels head office in order to complete the required licence checks, to ensure you are covered by our insurance. Send to:

    Co-wheels Car Club 
    3a Sunderland Road 
    DH1 2LH

    Alternatively, you can get your licence checked at a local Post Office branch, using the Post Office Document Verification Service. To find out more about this service, please ask at the Post Office. If the Post Office checks your licence, please send the verified documents that they give you to our address.

    Unfortunately, at the moment, the online DVLA check system is not compatible with licences issued in Northern Ireland. If you have a Northern Irish licence, please proceed with the above method of getting your licence verified.
