Winter weather can take its toll on your vehicle, causing roads to deteriorate and create potholes that can damage your car’s wheels, tyres, suspension and more.

That’s why we’re offering a steering, suspension and geometry check for just £49.95.

Britain currently has 12,000 miles of potholes awaiting repair; that's more than 30,000 potholes causing misery for motorists!

Damage caused by Potholes

If you hit a deep one – even at a relatively slow speed – you could damage your tyres, wheels and steering alignment.
Hitting one at a higher speed can cause more damage to your car. So, if you’re unlucky enough to hit a pothole, here’s what you need to do:

Check for damage

  • Pull over somewhere safe as earlier as possible and check for any visible damage to your wheels and/or tyres.
  • In some cases, damage might not be obvious immediately, so keep an eye out for any vibrations, or the vehicle pulling to either side rather than being central when driving straight.
  • If you do find signs of damage, call and get your vehicle checked.

Report the pothole

  • To prevent others from being as unfortunate as you and your vehicle, report the pothole to your local county, city or borough council.
  • They can then arrange repairs and prevent any other similar incidents.
  • Motorways and A-Road can be reported to the Highways Agency.
