How to be your own best
roadside assistance plan
Empower yourself to be educated about your ride! Whether you drive 2 miles to work, or are planning an epic 2,000 miles road trip, learn the skills that you need to be your own best roadside assistance plan!
In this class, we are going to learn:
The most important underhood fluids, and how to check their level and condition
How to properly, safely, jump-start your vehicle
The tools that you should ALWAYS have with you
How to change a spare tire, and check tire pressure
How to check your tires for proper tread depth
What all of the different dash lights mean and what to do if a dash light comes on.
This is a two-hour class that is almost entirely hands-on, but all activities are completely voluntary. We will check underhood fluids and tire tread depth and tire pressure on every vehicle present. For the spare tire change lesson, we will choose one vehicle (usually a small car for safety purposes) from the group to perform the spare tire change service to. Then, we will locate the spare tire and tools on every vehicle, as often they are hidden, and can vary from vehicle-to-vehicle!
How to prepare for class:
Bring a vehicle that you would like to learn more about
Wear clothes that can get dirty: long pants and closed-toed shoes are preferred, but not required.
Locate your owner’s manual, and have it ready (optional, but will definitely maximize your experience!)
Have a positive attitude! Don’t worry about what you don’t know, this is a beginner’s class. No prior knowledge is required.
This class is available twice a year, and also for private lessons. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
