Module 2 - All-Weather Driving

All-weather Driving.

driving in heavy rain

In the All Weather Driving module you will cover as many skills as the weather conditions allow in your practical session. Focus will be on correct speed and safe stopping distances. It will also incorporate how to ensure that your vehicle is clearly seen in adverse weather conditions and how to increase your visibility of other road users in poor weather conditions. The practical sessions will usually take place in at least one adverse weather condition. E.g.

driving in fog

  • rain
  • sleet
  • snow
  • ice
  • mist
  • fog
  • high winds
  • bright sunshine

  • However, as the practical session cannot be taken in all weather conditions, there will be extensive discussion relating to other weather conditions and how to ensure maximum safety.

    You’ll also look at skidding, which includes:

    driving in snow

  • what causes skids
  • how to prevent skids
  • correcting slow-speed skids
  • braking on poor surfaces
  • braking in poor weather
  • aquaplaning
