Useful information for the road:
It’s a good idea to always check your car before driving a long way and when you need to be on time. By checking your vehicle, you can avoid any unforeseen issues along your journey and reduce any stress.
Some things to consider when having your car checked include: oil, coolant, tire pressure, and your lights. We also suggest checking the tire pressure of your spare, to ensure you have a good back-up.
Whether your vehicle runs on petrol, diesel, or LPG, you can get fuel virtually anywhere in the United Kingdom. When planning to drive on the motorways, we advise you to top off your tank before entering the motorway. Fueling while still in the city streets usually has lower prices than the stations located along the motorway. Please be aware that LPG is not always offered at petrol stations located in the city due to safety issues.
You may already be aware of UK traffic regulations, but nevertheless we would like to provide the following information over speed limits. The national speed limit on motorways and dual carriageways is 70 miles per hour. On single carriageways there is a speed limit of 60 miles per hour, and if you drive on city roads there is a speed limit of 30 miles per hour. We do suggest that you check the local signage for speed limits, as these numbers may change depending on a number of factors.
