When a motorist embarks on their driving career it can be a daunting prospect. Most of us will have been taught by a qualified instructor who was constantly at our side during the weeks and months it took to learn to drive. Then, quick as a flash, you pass your driving test and you’re let loose on the road all on your own.

Suddenly, there’s more to think about than just being in the right place at the right time for your lessons. Now you have to get a car with an MOT and road tax, you have to organise young driver car insurance – you’ve even got to keep the car filled with fuel.

It may feel as though there’s little or no time to think about car maintenance and vehicle safety, but hey, basic vehicle maintenance can be a life saver, as well as helping your car stay road worthy and mechanically sound for longer. Plus, a little work on your car, done regularly, can help keep the cost of repairs down in the future.
