You need to change the way you drive according to outside conditions and hazardous situations. This includes driving in winter, in the snow, on a wet road surface, driving with a spare tyre, snow chains, snow socks fitted, or studded tyres. Learn how to assess the risks and know how to react at the wheel if the car starts aquaplaning. In this section, we will also show you how driver assistance systems such as ABS, ESP and ASR work and how to interpret your vehicle’s response in case of difficulties.
