About Driving at Night & in Bad Weather
Driving at night for the first time can be a strange experience, more so if like me, you learned to drive during the summer when days were long, and your first night journey was made without anyone there to guide you.
Even after gaining experience, many drivers still go about in darkness as if the sun were shining; showing no regard for the extra demands that driving in the dark makes on us.
During the spring and summer months the weather is at worst wet and windy, but driving in winter can present a whole new set of problems. An inexperienced driver’s first encounter with the perils of driving in snow or icy conditions can be a daunting time. For those unprepared and lacking in the basic knowledge of how to cope with winter conditions the results can be deadly.
So here are a few rules and driving tips for new and seasoned motorists alike, to try and make night time and winter driving a more pleasant…and safer experience!

Don has spent most of his life working in the driver training and testing industry. He began as a driving instructor way back in 1984 working for a local driving school, before retraining under the British School of Motoring, and eventually going on to run his own business.
Not content to stay at that level, he became a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, passed the RoSPA police driving test at gold standard; and began to train company car drivers for the advanced tests.
Don then went on to become a driving examiner, a job which he did for many years before leaving to branch out on his own once again.
He now spends most of his time writing, using his extensive experience at all levels of driver training and testing to produce a series of books which will hopefully help him to pass on some of that knowledge to you.
Don has recently launched a website at www.ukdrivingskills.co.uk
When he has spare time he also likes to cook, but is not yet planning on launching any recipe books!
