Without a customary security check you could be driving around in an auto that is a danger to you and different drivers. On the off chance that you had an accident, your insurance policy or the auto could be void.
Agenda of the things that should be analyzed:
- Registration plate,
- Wipers and windshield,
- Seat belts and seats,
- Doors and mirrors,
- Wheels and tires,
- Fuel framework.
