Rain, fog, bright sunshine, snow and ice: find out how to drive safely in all the different weather conditions you’ll face on the road

• rain
• sleet, snow and ice
• mist and fog, and
• bright sunshine
You will also look at skidding
• what causes them
• how to prevent them
• correcting slow-speed skids
• braking on poor surfaces, and
• aquaplaning

•you should keep well back from the vehicle in front. This will increase your ability to see and plan ahead

•if the steering becomes unresponsive, it probably means that water is preventing the tyres from gripping the road. Ease off the accelerator and slow down gradually

•the rain and spray from vehicles may make it difficult to see and be seen

•be aware of the dangers of spilt diesel that will make the surface very slippery

•take extra care around pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and horse riders.

In winter check the local weather forecast for warnings of icy or snowy weather. DO NOT drive in these conditions unless your journey is essential. If it is, take great care and allow more time for your journey. Take an emergency kit of de-icer and ice scraper, torch, warm clothing and boots, first aid kit, jump leads and a shovel, together with a warm drink and emergency food in case you get stuck or your vehicle breaks down.
