Top Ten Winter Driving TipsAdverse weather and prolonged darkness make winter driving more hazardous. Wet and icy conditions can have a huge impact on how your Land Rover performs in the cold weather. In the UK, with warmer winters in the past, not many drivers have experience driving in extreme winter conditions. So take your time and consider our winter driving tips on the road this season:
- Prepare your vehicle, top up your screen wash, de-frost all windows before setting off
- Know your journey and should you not have Sat Nav, be aware of alternative routes you could take
- Ensure you have plenty of fuel in the tank to compensate for any required detours
- Use dipped headlamps in snowy, wet weather
- Increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front to compensate longer stopping distances
- Take your time when accelerating/decelerating to avoid skidding
- Know your brakes, ensure your brake pads have sufficient depth. This can be checked on a free vehicle health check by our technicians.*
- Ensure you have sufficient tyre tread and they are correctly inflated
- Invest in a set of Winter Wheels and Tyres
- Keep a pack of essentials, just in case: Screen wash top-up, Top-up oil, De-icer, Ice Scraper, Phone charger, Spare tyre/tyre sealant
*Advance booking required.
