Practice makes perfect as the old saying goes and there is a lot of truth in that. Driving is associated with dangers and you need to pass a driving test to be allowed to drive a vehicle. Driving different vehicle types can require different licenses, as knowing how to drive one, might not necessarily give you the right skill set to drive another. This can vary between moped, motorcycle, car and various sizes of trucks.
Also different terrains and weather can cause the driving to be different and another skill set is needed. It tends to be impossible to perfectly learn in driving school the full skill set for any given situation, so you will need to learn and develop over time. With winter driving, which is one of the most challenging conditions to drive in, you should prepare yourself and make sure you practice in these conditions.
When driving on winter surfaces such as snow and ice, it is important that you have proper winter tyres mounted to even have a chance to drive safely. Without proper tyres on the vehicle, even the safest one will be very unsafe. Even with good qualitytyres that have been approved for winter conditions, some driving practice is needed and a lot to become a perfect driver. You will need to learn how the vehicle behaves in sharp turns and how the braking distance is affected by the surface and the speed.
If you are driving on ice, you are better off with studded tyres that have metal studs that will give you very good grip on ice. If you drive on mainly snow, then both the studded and the non-studded tyres will give you good grip. The non-studded ones use a unique tread design to achieve the grip on snow and also on ice. If you get the chance to try both you will learn the difference of how it is driving with them on your vehicle.
So to become a better driver regardless of weather and terrain, always take the chance to practice and improve. Try to practice in the conditions that you mainly drive in, but don’t forget also to improve in the ones that you will face sometimes. It will make you a better and safer driver.
