Winter driving checklist

There are certain winter preparations you can make to your vehicle as well as precautions you can take before travelling.

Make sure that you have an emergency kit in your car. This should include:

Is your vehicle ready for winter?

Check that your vehicle is ready for winter using the POWDERY checklist as a good reminder:

PETROL (or diesel). Have you got enough? Do you know where to fill up?

OIL – check levels once a month

WATER – check radiator, screenwash and anti-freeze levels regularly

DAMAGE – check wipers, lights etc for signs of wear and tear or damage

ELECTRICS – check lights, indicators and controls are working properly

RUBBER TYRES – are they well inflated, legal, with good tread and free from damage?

YOURSELF – are you fit to drive? Have you slept well? Are you taking any medication(s) that could make it unsafe for you to drive?
