A light check for your safety


Seeing and being seen are the deciding safety factors for traffic on the road. It is therefore advisable to have your lights tested, particularly before and after the darker months. Headlamps are needed particularly often in winter and frost and splashes of dirty surface water take their toll.

Have your headlamps checked regularly in a specialist garage to ensure that you travel safely.

Our tip for a quick safety check:

Light check before you set off!

Test your lights one by one. It's fastest if you get someone to help you.
It's best to start with the front lighting:
Switch the parking light on – everything ok? After switching on the ignition, operate the low beam, high beam, front fog lamp, rear fog lamp, direction indicators and, particularly important, the warning light.
Continue with the rear lighting:
Put the car into reverse and check whether both reversing spotlights are illuminated. Operate the brake. Are the stop lamps working properly?
