The benefits of joining a female drivers club

As well as being vital for many people on the daily commute, shopping and business trips, driving is also something that's genuinely enjoyable to lots of motorists. Women considering joining a drivers' club will find that there are several female-only options if they'd prefer.

Group membership can give you access to driving support, the opportunity to make like-minded friends and advice on vehicle maintenance should you need it. There's generally a monthly fee for membership, and there are both local and official national clubs including the Foxy Drivers Club and the British Women Racing Drivers Club.

Some of the help you can receive from a club covers what to do when it's time to renew your MOT and insurance, after an accident, or when buying or selling a vehicle. A nationwide support network can also advise you on the best authorised dealership and service centre to visit when you're not close to home. Even if you've been driving for years and have a lot of confidence, there may still be times when having someone to discuss your options with is a real help.

There are also some things about driving that only other females can understand, such as the difficulties of staying comfortable and safe while pregnant. Any drivers club brings benefits to members, not just a female-only club, but the specific assistance you have access to could be a distinct advantage.
