Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) is busy preparing for the winter weather and one of the services offered to residents is the opportunity to attend a free Winter Driving Workshop to gain the knowledge and skills to help drive safely during the winter months.
Of all the seasons, winter requires the most care and preparation if you’re to stay safe on the road and avoid a breakdown – and attending a free winter driving workshop may help you be ready for the challenge.
TfB are working in partnership with STS Tyre Pros and Kwik Fit Garages to host and deliver the workshops which include :
- A presentation by a former Class 1 police response driver on how to drive in winter weather.
- A session with garage technicians who demonstrate how to conduct basic vehicle checks.
Feedback from previous winter driving workshops has been very positive, with attendees commenting on how worthwhile the workshops are.
County Councillor Mark Shaw, Cabinet Member for Transportation, said ‘Winter driving can bring challenging conditions for all drivers, be it heavy rain, icy roads or falling snow.
I would encourage all drivers to attend one of these workshops which are intended to support drivers by providing winter driving tips, from preparing your vehicle and looking after your car to advice on driving in snow.‘
The 2016 workshops all start at 7.00pm and finish approximately 8.30pm. The dates and locations are :
- Chesham – Tuesday 29th November 2016
- High Wycombe – Tuesday 6th December 2016
- Aylesbury – Wednesday 7th December 2016
