Driving Tips

You may have been driving for decades or you may be a newbie on the roads. Either way, it’s always good to refresh your memory or learn some handy new tips for when you next hit the road. We have put together our top driving tips for you below…

Parking your car

When parking your car, if you’re the sort of person who can’t always remember where you left it, you can drop a pin on Google Maps. In doing this, you can then navigate back to your car without the stress and hassle that often comes with working out where you left it.

Location, location, location

This is another parking tip. If you’re worried about scratches and scrapes on a public car park, try parking further away from the destination. The theory is that people will be less likely to park close to you or in the spaces next to you, if you are at the back or far end of the car park.

Get learning

Instead of leaving the radio on for those long journeys or the daily commute, try listening to an audiobook or podcast. Although singing along to your favourite tunes might seem preferable, you could spend the time learning something new!

Be prepared

Have you got everything you need in your car? You may think so but think again. Make sure you have snacks and water in case you break down. A first aid kit could also come in handy! If you’re heading on a long journey, make sure you have everything you need to be comfortable, including the right footwear and clothing!
