    Owning a car

    Owning a car brings with it convenience and pleasure but also a number of responsibilities and some basic administration.

    A vehicle must be registered, taxed, insured and roadworthy to drive on the public highway. And looking after your car to a decent standard will not only assist in maintaining its appeal and value, it will also help to keep you and other road users safe.

    This section looks at all aspects of owning a vehicle including its safe and legal use, vehicle checks and key documentation.
