Free driving workshop helps prepare for winter

A free Winter Driving Workshop is being arranged on Wednesday January 21 by Transport for Buckinghamshire to give motorists the knowledge and skills to help drive safely during the winter months.

The workshop, in partnership with STS Tyre Pros Garages, Aylesbury, follows successful winter driving workshops in Chesham and High Wycombe. Motorists who attended said how worthwhile they were.

The workshop, at the STS tyre and exhaust centre in Park Street, Aylesbury, will include:

• A presentation by a former Class 1 police response driver on how to handle vehicles on ice and snow.
• A session with garage technicians who demonstrate to motorists how to conduct basic checks on their vehicles.
Ruth Vigor-Hedderly, Buckinghamshire County Council Cabinet Member for Transport, said: 'Winter driving can bring challenging conditions for all drivers. These workshops support drivers by providing tips, from preparing your vehicle and looking after your car to advice on driving in snow. I would strongly recommend attending this course.'

Signing up to attend is easy: phone 01296 382450, or email or go online.
