Driving in Weather Extremes
Traditional seasons seem to be on their way out and odd weather events and extremes on the increase. However, whether we're faced with torrential rain, freezing conditions or a heat wave, the same basics apply to driving and looking after our vehicles. It's all about planning ahead, preparing your vehicle and the mind-set of the person behind the wheel.
First consider if you need to go out or can your trip wait until weather conditions improve? If you do need to travel take some time ahead of your journey to plan (e.g. the route, clothing, snacks, water, phone charger, breakdown kit, etc)
Prepare your vehicle (e.g. check oil, coolant, screenwash, fuel, wipers, tyres, lights etc) Ray and team are always on hand if you need help with vehicle preparation.
Finally, as a driver you have a personal responsibility for your own safety and the safety of your passengers and other road users, therefore consider before driving:
Time – Have you left plenty of time for your journey? (remember to factor breaks into your journey time)
Health - Are you feeling fit, well rested and alert?
Driving skills – Are you skilled and confident to drive in the weather conditions?
Drive Safely this Winter

Gov.uk MOT Reminders
Did you know that you can set up an MOT reminder via the gov.uk website?
Life is busy for us all these days and we are often rushing from one thing to the next without enough time to think or plan ahead. This sometimes means things are forgotten or left to the last minute, for example organising the MOT on your vehicle.
Sometimes a little reminder is just what's needed for example setting up an MOT reminder via the GOV.UK website. Go to: https://www.gov.uk/mot-reminder
Put in your vehicle's number plate and either your e-mail address or mobile phone number (depending on how you wish to receive your reminder). You'll then receive an e-mail or text asking you to activate your MOT reminder (this needs to be done within 24hrs before the link expires).
Once activated, you'll receive an annual e-mail or text one month before your MOT is due and again two weeks later if you don't have your MOT yet.
A little thing to make life a little easier!

Feeling hot, hot, hot!
if August stays like July, we're in for a scorcher this summer. Whilst we mostly enjoy sunny days, if you're travelling, the hot sun beaming down on you in your vehicle isn't always a pleasure. Doing a few little things in preparation for travelling can often help ease the stress of long hot journeys:
Top up fluids, check tyre pressures, fill up with fuel and give your car a wash off to remove dust from windows and lights.
Test your vehicle cooling system/ air conditioning
Pack water, snacks, emergency kit, essential medications, phone charger and don't forget entertainment for children
Plan your route and think about travelling out of busy periods
Get a good night's sleep before a long journey and plan for regular breaks to keep you fresh
Set up hands-free for your phone or devices so you remain legal and safe while driving
Stay cool and safe.
