Ladies in the Driving Seat
New research has revealed that nearly two thirds of female motorists (64%) don't feel comfortable about visiting a garage for repairs, servicing or car checks with a quarter (25%) saying that they avoid going to a garage on their own.
The research conducted by Kwik Fit, also revealed that a third (33%) of women drivers would like the knowledge to be able to deal with a motoring emergency, and the same proportion (32%) would like to be able to carry out basic car maintenance checks themselves.
In response to these findings, Kwik Fit are holding 'Ladies in the Driving Seat' car care evenings, primarily aimed at women who want to learn a bit more about their car and as a result, feel more comfortable if they ever need to go to a garage.
We currently have no "Ladies In The Driving Seat" events planned.
