The Driving Advice Guide

The Driving Advice Guide

The process of learning to drive shouldn't stop when we pass our driving test; we should consider it as a lifelong journey, and continue to pick up driving tips and techniques that can help us to use our cars in a considerate and sensible manner. Not only can this make the roads safer for everybody, but with 20% of carbon dioxide emissions coming from road transport, how we drive can also make a surprising difference to our air quality.

In this section, you'll find a range of guides that offer advice on driving in unfamiliar or difficult situations, such as driving at night, in snow or fog, with a roof rack or in a foreign country. There's also a variety of techniques for safer driving in general, along with some ideas on how you can lower your fuel consumption to minimise costs and the impact on the environment.
