RAC Approved Dealers


We recognise that when you’re buying a used car you want to drive away with confidence. When you go to an RAC Approved Dealer, you don’t need to worry – you’ll be getting:


  • In who you're buying from
  • That the car is safe to buy (both mechanically and in terms of history)

Peace of mind:

  • That there's someone to turn to if you have a problem with the car
  • That there's someone to turn to if you have a problem with the seller
  • That the car is under warranty with third party support

You can relax knowing that every single one of our Approved Dealers  is audited at least six times a year, so you’ll know you’re getting a high-quality vehicle.
