RAC UK is one of the United Kingdom's leading roadside assistance companies and a leading provider of motoring
information and services for private motorists including traffic & travel
information and car finance & insurance.
RAC UK's origins started at the start of the 1900's when the Automobile
Club first received royal approval in 1907 and became the motoring organization
- the Royal Automobile Club. Investing heavily in promoting the interests of
private motorists the RAC were first known for their introduction of
uniformed breakdown patrols in the first decade (a tradition that continues
with the RAC Breakdown services available today). This services was quickly
supplemented in 1912 with the establishment of emergency roadside phone boxes
in 1912. The RAC UK organization was also the first to introduce driving certificates
well ahead of the Government's proposal to make them a legal requirement. In
1999 Lex (originally a side arm of the RAC company specializing in car parking
and leasing services) bought the RAC services from the original RAC club. Despite
RAC UK no longer having any involvement with the RAC club they remain
resolute in their commitment to supporting motorists and are constantly extending
the range of motoring services offered to private UK motorists since changing
ownership. Currently there are approximately 7,000,000 million RAC Breakdown
services registered members, however there are many other members who are signed
up with other offerings from RAC UK service range. Furthermore, the RAC UK Internet
site as well as enabling individuals to sign up to their many services is a
comprehensive information resource for motorists.
