Is Your Car Roadworthy?

Driving a car can open you up to a great sense of freedom, especially if you are a new driver. From road trips to family holidays, being behind the wheel can be a real privilege.

However driving is also a serious responsibility – Not only are you in charge of the people inside your car, but you have to keep an eye on the car itself. This means making sure that your vehicle is roadworthy, which includes checking the lights, tyres, wheel fixings, bodywork, trailer coupling, and any other load or equipment attached to the car, amongst others.

It is advisable to check this before any journey, especially longer ones – This will help to avoid problems in the event of an on-the-spot vehicle check.

Safe driving from Britannia!
