  • Ensure that your car is completely roadworthy. Check the tyres, brakes, windscreen wipers and lights (headlights, fog lights and break lights);
  • Make sure that you have an emergency kit in your car, this will include: jumper cables, foldable reflective triangle, tow rope, emergency window hammer with seatbelt cutter and a basic first aid kit;
  • Make sure you have all the required tools for changing a tyre;
  • Get any window chips and cracks repaired as soon as possible;
  • Make sure your car licence disc and your drivers’ licence are both still valid;
  • Check your oil and water regularly;
  • When travelling long distances, have a second driver to assist with the drive time.
  • Make sure you have Insurance Assist with Iemas STI and that you save the number on your phone, to assist you during an emergency on the road.
