Road trips are a great way to explore WA, and it’s important to check your vehicle’s road worthiness before going on one.

  • Make sure your vehicle is up to date with servicing. If it’s not, book one in before you hit the road.
  • Check that your tyres have enough air in them. The placard inside the door will tell.
  • The tread on your tyres should be 1.5mm or deeper. It might be time to get them replace if they’re looking bald.
  • Ensure you have a spare tyre that’s in good condition, so you don’t get stranded somewhere without one.
  • Visit to and check out their vehicle maintenance checklist.
