So, your new driver is tackling winter roads for the first time. It’s a tough task and there’s no shortage of planning—and concerns. One worry parents should not have is car care. Make sure your young driver is set for the ice, slush and more. 

Winter maintenance
Ensuring a vehicle is well serviced is key to driving in wintertime without incident. CAA Members rely on CAA Approved Auto Repair Services (AARS™). These facilities meet stringent CAA standards and Members receive a guaranteed 1-year/20,000-km warranty on parts and labour plus 3% back in CAA Dollars® on repairs.  

Stay in charge
Don’t let your new driver’s battery power run low due to the cold. CAA’s Mobile Battery Service will test, replace and recycle an old car battery—from your home or workplace, or even from the side of the road. Delivery and installation are included at no additional cost.  

Help you can trust 
“What does that light on my dash mean?” You might not always be there to field your young driver’s random auto questions, but your young driver can still get answers. CAA’s team of automotive experts provide Members with free consultation and advice
