Esperance Supercheap Auto to hold road safety training

Driver Safety Australia and Supercheap Auto have teamed up to run free car checks.

According, to Driver Safety Australia, four in five young Australian drivers don't take regular checks on their cars.

The organisation has launched Check It, an initiative that raises awareness among younger drivers about the need for regular checks.

Free in-store training will be available throughout the day at Esperance Supercheap Auto on Saturday, March 30.

Drivers will also have the chance to learn other vehicle checks through a series of online tutorials.

Driver Safety Australia founder Russell White said a lack of checks were endangering the lives of young drivers and road users generally.

“Car crashes happen in an instant, and in that moment having a car in safe condition can be the difference between life and death,” he said.
