Check To Protect

Partner Programs

One in five vehicles on the road today has an unrepaired safety recall. GHSA partners with the National Safety Council (NSC) to spread the word that it’s important – and easy – to check your vehicle’s recall status and schedule a free repair through the national Check To Protect campaign.

Check to Protect GraphicDrivers can enter their vehicle identification number at or directly on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website for a full report of their vehicle's recall status. The 17-digit VIN can be found in the lower left corner of a vehicle’s windshield, on the inside of the driver-side door, on the vehicle registration card and possibly on insurance documents. Getting a recall repaired is free of charge to the vehicle owner.


GHSA and our members use social media year-round to help promote the importance of checking your vehicle for active recalls and making the necessary repairs. Check to Protect makes a variety of free materials available that can be used by any organization. Click here to access the toolkit.
