Is the motor dead or merely making a clicking sound? Or is it turning but not 'catching'? It's likely that your starter motor will require rapid repair or even replacement to get your car up and running again. If you’re stuck on the drive you can employ a mobile mechanic, or get the garage to take a look at your car battery too to see if that is responsible for halting the engine.
