Sooner or later, your leased company car will have to be returned and will, hopefully, be replaced by a new one. Get an overview of the return process here.
The car must be returned to an FDM test center on the expiration date. If the expiration date falls on a weekend/public holiday, the vehicle must be returned on the last working day before the planned expiry of the contract. If you are booking an appointment for the inspection and there are no available time slots on the ordinary expiry date, the vehicle must be returned on the day before.
Returning your company car during COVID-19
If your lease term expires during COVID-19, it is still possible for you to return the car to an FDM test center.
If you book an appointment online, you (or a representative from your company) have the option to follow the test assistant's inspection from a distance. When the inspection is completed, you/the representative will also have the option to look under the car with the test assistant. Naturally, this will be done at a safe distance and with lots of hand sanitizer.
You can also make do with simply handing over your company car to one of the below mentioned FDM test centers without booking an appointment beforehand. In that case, FDM will inspect the car without you following it from a distance, and the assessment will be sent to you electronically. Remember to get a receipt for your hand-over.
FDM test centers that can be used without booking an appointment: Ballerup, Hillerød, Taastrup, Næstved*, Slagelse*, Odense, Fredericia, Esbjerg*, Holstebro, Silkeborg, Århus V (Hasle) and Aalborg.
*Some FDM test centers may be closed during holiday seasons. During holidays, it is therefore a good idea to book an appointment for the inspection to make sure that the center is open.
For further details on the inspection, e.g., your checklist before the return and information on how the vehicle is inspected for any damage and defects, see our detailed check-in guides here:
Be aware that these guides do not take the circumstances of COVID-19 into account.
