    Introducing DLG Auto Services

    May 2017

    UK Assistance Accident Repair Centres are now trading as DLG Auto Services, which are part of the Direct Line Group. We believe that we have the best network of repair centres in the UK, however customer research told us that consumers don't know what UK Assistance is - DLG Auto Services is a bold statement that puts the DLG name above the door.

    It's worth noting that 'UK Assistance Accident Repair Centres' remains the trading name for the operation so no need to be confused if you still see it on certain documents.

    Brake - Road Safety Charity

    23rd June 2016

    We have worked with Brake, the road safety charity, for 13 years. In this time, we have produced seminal survey reports on driver behaviour, attitudes and understanding; and released the results to the media to raise awareness of safe driving.This year's reports have covered ‘driving offences and deterrents', ‘crash protection and vehicle selection', ‘winter driving' and ‘use of head restraints'. Brake uses this research for its wider campaigning, education, community and professional engagement activities. We hold events in Westminster with parliamentarians to showcase this research.

    We also sponsor Brake's Parliamentarian of the Year Awards, which recognise Members of Parliament who have campaigned on road-safety issues and (under the Churchill brand) we sponsor Beep Beep! Days an education initiative aimed at 2-7 year olds, which delivers road safety basics through fun activities, while raising awareness among parents and the wider community about protecting children on roads.
