Pledge to take the 20p Test - Check your tread depth to make sure you're safe and legal

Using a 20 pence piece you can quickly and easily check whether your tyre thread depths are safe and legal. This will keep you and your passengers safe on the roads. (see pictures)

Your tyres condition is critical to acceleration, braking, steering and cornering and as the driver, you are responsible for making sure your tyres are legal and roadworthy.

Simply insert a 20p coin into your tyre's main tread grooves to see if the outer rim of the coin is covered by the the tread. Repeat this in all the main grooves and at several points around its circumference.If you can see the rim of the coin when it is inserted at any point, your tyre may be illegal and should be checked by a tyre specialist.

UK Law requires tyres to have a minimum of 1.6 mm of tread accross the central three quarters of the tyre around its entire circumference. Failure to comply with this legal requirement, can result in fines up to £2,500 and 3 penalty points. (source tyresafe.org)
