Young Drivers

Without the experience of seasoned motorists, young drivers are more at risk on the roads. However, they can increase their safety by carrying out regular tyre safety checks

TyreSafe and Ingenie carried out a survey of 1,000 young drivers, which highlighted a concerning lack of knowledge of tyre safety and legislation.

Failure to ensure your tyres meet the minimum legal standards means that you could face a fine of up to £2,500 and 3 penalty points – for each illegal tyre! What’s more, poorly maintained tyres reduce your safety on the road, placing yourself, your passengers and other road users at a greater risk of being involved in an accident. However, checking that your tyres are roadworthy is incredibly simple and only needs to take a few minutes every month. But don’t just take our word for, here’s what BBC Outnumbered actor Tyger Drew-Honey found out when we took him to a test track to learn more about tyre care and maintenance.
