Vehicle safety rating labels can be printed by motor vehicle dealers and displayed on cars for sale, providing consumers with simple information about a vehicle’s safety performance when they’re making their next purchase, and helping people to stay safe on our roads.
The safety rating label sits alongside the Vehicle Fuel Economy Label (VFEL), which is administered by EECA (Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority). The VFEL informs customers of the fuel efficiency and estimated yearly fuel running costs of a vehicle. When traders generate labels for their vehicles, they can automatically generate a safety label for display alongside the VFEL:
To print safety rating information for a vehicle, go to the label generator on EECA’s website, and follow the instructions.
Safety ratings are the best indication of how your vehicle is likely to perform in a crash. Safety ratings range from 1 to 5-stars, the safest vehicles have 5-star safety ratings while less safe vehicles have a 1-star rating.
