ADAC – more than just tyres tests
ADAC’s tyre tests have for many years been viewed as the most detailed and the most prestigious. In spite of the controversies that are sometimes associated with the publication of the results, their popularity shows no sign of waning. The ADAC organisation is one of the largest motor clubs in the world (second behind the American AAA), and it counts 17 million drivers and motorcyclists among its members.
ADAC was founded in 1903, and so is now 116 years old. Its main activities include oversight and promotion of road transport, motor sports and tourism, and the protection and education of all road users.
ADAC also publishes motoring magazines, maps and atlases, runs a road assistance network, tests new vehicle models and child seats (as well as tyres), checks the safety of tunnels and ferries, and offers vehicle insurance. ADAC also runs centres that offer training in road traffic safety.
This wide range of activity means that ADAC enjoys a high level of popularity all over the world.
