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 car 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
Tyre safety check
We offer a complimentary tyre safety check to make sure that your tyre treads and pressures are correct to give you the maximum grip on the road. Should you need replacement tyres, our range of competitively-priced tyres is backed up by a price-match guarantee so you can be sure you’ve got the best quality at the best price, whilst waiting in the comfort of our facilities for the tyres to be fitted.
My husband bought a car from Craig just over a week ago and he has never known service like it. The communication, level of care and attention to detail was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble for Craig, he was friendly and he made us as a family feel very welcome. He worked within our budget and we felt that he got us the best deal possible. With service like this we will continue to purchase cars from Lloyd’s in the future and we would definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you for a very smooth and efficient experience!
