Keeping your car in a safe, roadworthy and legal condition is a key part of safe driving.
Your car must be properly taxed, have a valid MOT (unless it is under three years old) and should be serviced regularly, according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
Regular safety checks are important to ensure that nothing has gone wrong between services and MOTs.
