Additional costs to the member could include fuel, any delivery or collection charges (if you are outside the central London free delivery and collection zone), congestion charges, speeding fines and parking tickets.
We do not make any profit from our members relating to damage to our cars. Damaged alloy wheels are charged to our members at the cost price to us of the repair as is any repair cost due to damage to a vehicle. We have a number of garages that we have negotiated very competitive pre-agreed rates with so we always try to make this issue as painless as possible for our members.
No. As we are a private members club we trust our members to behave properly in the event that any insurance excess is payable in the event of damage to a car.
Yes. If a member takes out a Collision Damage Waiver subscription then they may choose to use this when they damage a car in lieu of having to pay any repair charges that would otherwise be payable. Each CDW is valid for one use and lasts for twelve months. If used, a member may take out another CDW at P1’s discretion, dependent upon the circumstances of the accident.
A Wildcard is what you use to make a booking if it is more than 30 days in advance. Wildcards ensure you get the car you want when you want it. Each Wildcard is valid for one car for a maximum of one week.
No, not always as the concept is that of shared access with your fellow members. However, our tried and tested ratio of members to cars has worked exceptionally well since September 2000 so you can be assured that accessing our supercars really will not be an issue. Alternatively, you can utilise one of your Wildcards to ensure that you get a specific car on a specific date. Also, if you choose not to use a Wildcard and your preferred choice of car isn't available you can always choose one of our other great models from our extensive fleet. For example, if the Ferrari isn't available it isn't the end of the world to "make do" with a Lamborghini, McLaren or Aston instead!
If a member uses all their allocated points before the end of their membership year, they can simply renew their membership early, thus receiving a new allocation of points.
Yes. Our members are welcome to drive a car into Europe. However, we do require our members to give us prior notice so that we can prepare the relevant documentation and carry out specific mechanical and safety checks for a high mileage journey.
No. P1 cars are not allowed on a race track, race circuit, deregulated toll roads or used in any way for speed testing. P1 reserves the right to terminate a membership if any Club member or life partner or other person permitted by a member is in breach of this rule.
Yes, a member’s life partner is included in the membership subject to successfully completing our high performance driver training and awareness course with our approved instructor. Only one life partner may be nominated per membership.
The Club week day runs from 12.00 pm to 10.00 am the following day, and the Club weekend runs from Friday at 12.00 pm to Monday at 10.00 am. Weekends represent three days of points. These times may be flexible dependent upon the individual member’s specific requirements.
A P1 member can book a car for a minimum of one day or for a maximum of two weeks.
Members may call or email our Membership Secretary to make a booking.
Not necessarily, but if you have not had prior driving experience in performance cars then we advise you to build up your experience through the car groups to get used to these types of cars. All new P1 members have to complete a high performance driver training and awareness course to ensure your and other road users safety. All members need to hold a full UK driving licence (non UK licenses may be acceptable subject to some additional checks - please contact us for details).
P1’s minimum age for a membership application is 25.
Yes, P1 offers bespoke corporate memberships designed to meet the requirements of the individual company.
