  1. Take it slow – with stopping distances 10 times longer gentle manoeuvres are the key.
  2. Pull away in second gear easing your foot off the clutch to avoid wheel-spin.
  3. Uphill – keep a constant speed and try to avoid having to change gear.
  4. Downhill – Slow down before the hill and use a low gear to avoid braking.
  5. Leave plenty of room between you and the car in front.
  6. If you get stuck straighten the steering and clear the snow from the wheels.
  7. Put a sack or rug in front of the wheels to give the tyres some grip.
