Freshers’ week is beginning for many, and students are going to be making their way north, south, east and west to begin their higher education. For some this will be the longest journey they’ve ever driven, to a new area, with a car fully laden with all their worldly goods. Here are some driving tips for those packing their bags up for the big trip to university from IAM RoadSmart’s communications manager Caroline Holmes.
Caroline said: “The temptation to overload a car that is only used for short journeys and head out on the motorway can be overwhelming. But breaking down at the side of the motorway is not a great start to your academic career. Taking the time to load properly, doing some basic mechanical checks and planning your trip will get you off to a flying start.”
