Winter Driving

Driving in the winter can be very different to driving during the rest of the year. Adverse weather and longer periods of darkness makes driving more hazardous, with prolonged periods of heavy snow and floods.

As drivers we may need to adapt the way we drive during the winter and be prepared for varied weather, road and traffic conditions.  It’s important that you feel confident that you and your vehicle are prepared for winter.
