If your alcohol blood limit is more than 0.08%, you will be fined, banned, and possibly even imprisoned. You should avoid consuming any alcohol in the build-up to driving a vehicle.

In Oregon, children under 18 kg must be in a booster seat, whilst those younger than two must be in a rear-facing child seat.

Whilst in Washington, children smaller than 149 cm need to be in a child seat, with those younger than two being put in a rear-facing child seat.

If you do not get this, your insurance will become void. You must also check that your vehicle isn't capped by the amount of mileage you can do, as this could affect the distance you're able to drive.
