Our experienced RAC Roadside Assistance Patrols share vital maintenance and safety tips with the drivers of tomorrow

About the workshop

Our Car Maintenance and Safety workshops are visual and interactive and include vehicle-based demonstrations for groups of 15 to 30 students. Workshops are delivered in schools by RAC Roadside Assistance Patrols and provide students with information and tips on how to safely maintain a vehicle, conduct regular safety checks and how to stay safe in the event of a breakdown.
