Winter driving checklist

We recommend you gather a few items at the start of the winter season and keep them in your car - just in case.

Below are items that should be in your emergency kit:

  • Ice scraper and de-icer
  • Torch and spare batteries - or a wind-up torch
  • Warm clothes and blankets - for you and all passengers
  • Boots
  • First aid kit
  • Jump start cables
  • Food and a warm drink in a thermos
  • Shovel
  • Reflective warning sign
  • Road atlas
  • Sunglasses - the glare off the snow can be dazzling
  • Mobile phone charger

If the weather is particularly, you may also want to consider the following additional items:

  • Snow socks
  • Chains

Many of these products can be found in the RAC Winter Driving Kit. Alternatively, check out all our winter driving products by visiting the Winter Driving Section of the RAC Shop.
