The Gals Garage Workshops are fun, informative, interactive and educational! They focus on all the basics of safe motoring and vehicle maintenance and aim to help women know as much as they possibly can about the cars they drive

Women can sign up for different courses ranging from tyre safety, basic vehicle maintenance, full day driving experiences as well as specially designed driving courses comprising of defensive and advanced driver training elements.

Every aspect of the Gals Garage Workshops serve to empower female motorists and car owners. The Workshops are hosted nationwide and in neighbouring countries and are open to corporates, sales staff, women’s interest groups, churches, varsity students and even work well as a different type of hen party, Mother’s Day gift or kitchen tea!

TYRE SAFETY WORKSHOP

Tyres are the most important safety feature on a car and are the only contact a car has with the road.   Without the correct pressure, fit or maintenance all other safety features in the car are severely compromised, especially the braking system.   It is therefore a matter of life and death that all drivers know how to properly keep their tyres optimally maintained

“When I started Driving In Heels, I was astounded by the number of women who had had bad and expensive experiences at service dealerships or with mechanics with almost all of them having been conned into paying more than they should have for basic repairs or parts. With a little basic knowledge chances are they wouldn’t have been taken for a ride (excuse the pun) That is how the idea of a tutorial specifically for females came about and thus the birth of the Gals Garage Workshops”. Vuyi Mpofu: Founder – Gals Garage Workshops

“The Gals Garage Workshops, women drivers come together without feeling shy, afraid, silly or intimidated and openly ask questions about driving and the mechanics of their cars in a way they can relate to and easily understand.” Vuyi Mpofu: Founder – Gals Garage Workshops
