Essential Winter Driving Kit Checklist

As the cold and dark nights of winter roll in, it’s best to stock yourself up with some useful tools and supplies just in case you get into a spot of bother.

Well, as the know-it-all phrase goes, ‘if you fail to prepare then prepare to fail’.

The All-Important Checklist

  • Ice scraper & de-icer
  • Fully charged mobile phone - have your breakdown service's number to hand
  • Warm clothing
  • Tow rope
  • Study boots and a set of ice grips
  • Emergency warning triangle
  • Snow shovel and a broom
  • Hi-vis clothing
  • Jump leads
  • First aid kit
  • Torch
  • Snow chains or snow socks for your tyres - practice fitting these in advance
  • Blanket or travel rug
  • De-icing salt
  • Food - high-energy cereal bars are a good choice
  • Spare car bulbs
  • Tyre inflator in case of a puncture

Tip - Investing in a car breakdown kit or a Winter Essentials Kit is a good way to purchase some of these items in one handy package
