Women are set to take pole position when Bunbury Holden holds a free workshop next month.

The Women on Wheels workshop will show female drivers the nitty gritty of their vehicles from wheel changes and tyre air to jump-starting cars, plus more.

Bunbury Holden senior administration and stock controller Leah Smith said the workshop was a great opportunity for women to know their vehicles and hone their road safety skills.

“It’s just about getting women in touch with their cars, understanding them and what is under the bonnet,” Ms Smith said.

The initiative was started by Holden and Women on Wheels several years ago, but Bunbury Holden has continued to run workshops in an effort to give back to the community.

Places are limited for the November 21 workshop, which will be held at the Bunbury Holden Service Centre and will include supper and “goody bag” full with items such as a fully-stocked medical kit.

Ms Smith said a point of difference for next month’s workshop was there would be a variety of vehicle types so attendees would learn about their car.

“When people are registering, we’re asking if they have a Trax, Cruze or whatever, so we can have that car at the workshop and it’s specific to their needs,” she said.

To book a spot contact Ms Smith on 9791 3899.
