I've never driven a vehicle on to a ferry before. What do I do?
Follow this simple guide when driving on and off the ferry:
Turn on your headlights and drive slowly, allowing plenty of room to brake
Follow the instructions of staff carefully — don't use your mobile phone, turn off your radio and open your window to make sure you can hear them
Check that other vehicles aren't approaching alongside before you open your door
Make sure your handbrake or parking brake is on
Disable your vehicle alarm, if possible. Refer to your vehicle manual for more details on how to disable your vehicle alarm.
Make sure you have all your belongings with you before leaving the vessel.
Don't start the engine until you're told to move off to avoid unnecessary fumes.
Drive slowly on leaving the ferry and follow the instructions of crew and shore staff.
