Businesses can help keep employees safe and prevent staff absence during snowy weather with low-cost winter driving workshops provided by Bucks County Council.

The Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) courses are run within business premises, presented by a former police officer with extensive experience of driving cars and motorbikes in all weathers.

Advice covers driving in snow, ice, fog and floodwater. The presentation also covers journey planning and how to use some of the technical features of modern vehicles.

The workshops are available to Bucks businesses and groups to host in their own premises, and cost £5 per person for a minimum of 20 people.

Participants get a copy of the Highway Code and a reflective jacket. For details, email tfb@buckscc.gov.uk or contact staff on 08452 302882.
