Winter Maintenance Tips

You are most likely aware of the fact that cars are expensive. Therefore, it’s important to take care of your vehicle, specifically during winter months. To get the most out of your vehicle and potentially avoid future mishaps, we invite you to take a look at our winter maintenance tips. Utilizing this list could prove to be quite beneficial. Take a look:


Are you currently due for a tune-up? If so, then it will be important to have your vehicle checked out before winter hits. If your car is already acting up, then the cold and inclement weather conditions could potentially cause further damage to take place. Therefore, before weather conditions take a turn for the worst, get a tune-up and make sure your vehicle is ready for winter.


Is your battery currently in good condition? Because the cold weather can often times be quite hard on batteries, it will be important to check the charging system of the battery to ensure that you are receiving the absolute most from the unit.


When is the last time you checked the antifreeze in your vehicle? It’s important to clean, flush out, and insert new antifreeze into your vehicle every two years. Therefore, if you haven’t done this in quite some time, you should look into completing this task before winter hits.


You can’t properly clear the snow and/or ice from your windshield if your wipers aren’t working. Before the first winter storm, check your wiper blades to make sure that they are correctly attached and effectively clearing your windshield.


During winter months, roadways will often times be slippery which can cause you and other drivers to brake more sporadically. Make sure your brakes are in good condition to potentially avoid any type of accident.


The tread and pressure of your tires is important. Before you head out this season, make sure that your tires are up to date and ready for any and all driving conditions.

Prepare for Winter

You will quickly discover that the more prepared you are for winter, the safer you will feel when getting behind the wheel. Of course, you will still need to practice safe driving techniques and always be cautious. Use our winter maintenance tips to ensure that your car is ready for the road this season.

I loved taking Virtual Driver Ed Instructor. Not only was it simple to use, but it was also easy to understand. I couldn't believe how fast it was and I had no problem receiving my certificate of completion. I strongly suggest using this program.

Virtual Drive was fast, fun, and easy to use. I didn't think driver's education could be so convenient. Being able to start and stop whenever I needed to was a big plus. I would recommend this to anyone trying to complete driver's education!

I found the course to be full of new additional information I needed to be current on my knowledge of new laws and procedures. Additionally I feel it would not be a bad idea for most people to take this course as a brush up from time to time.

My son Adam was the one who took the course. He has some significant learning disabilities and this course was an outstanding option for him. He was able to do it at his own pace which was a tremendous help.

I just wanted to say that Virtual Drive was awesome! Especially with me being a busy mom going to school and stuff was hard to go into actual classes. Thanks, Kevin!
