If you cease to hold the required driving licence, or if, in our opinion a driving licence endorsement makes you unsuitable to continue to use our Subscription Services, we will have the right to terminate the Subscription Agreement in accordance with clause 26.3 (We may end this contract if you break it) of our General Terms.

- be at least 25 years of age (or at least 30 for vehicles in ABI Group 31 and above); and

If they cease to hold the required driving licence, or if, in our opinion a driving licence endorsement makes them unsuitable to continue to be permitted to drive the Vehicle, the Subscription Agreement will remain in force, but that Named Driver will no longer be permitted to drive the Vehicle.
