Help Centre - What should I do if I breakdown?

If your car has broken down, here’s what to do to stay safe before you call the AA and while they are on their way to you.

  1. Make sure you are in a safe place. Move your vehicle off the road if possible or pull up onto the hard shoulder if you are on the motorway.
  1. Stay well away from moving traffic – it is usually safest to get out of your car (using the doors facing away from passing traffic) and wait behind a barrier.
  1. Put your hazard warning lights on and wear a reflective jacket if you have one.
  1. Once you are safe, give us a call on 0800 420 420 and we will come and rescue you.
