Riding in the Wet

  • Remember that you need to allow more space for braking or you may skid.
  • When the road is wet is when the oil slick they care so much about in your test really becomes dangerous - your wheels and your feet when you pull up at the lights may slip in them.
  • Try to avoid the white paint on the road as it will often be slippery - white lines between lanes, turning arrows etc.
  • If you turn your head slightly to one side then the other whilst moving, the wind will help clear the water from your visor. It helps if your visor is fairly clean.
  • The Bureau of Metereology (BOM) website is great for anticipating the weather
  • Puddles are fun!! :D
  • mention rainex for visor
  • mention use of fog masks/anti-fog stickers
  • read the road - oil will gather in low points
  • avoid oil slick, braking over white lines
  • read the road - lowest point of the road is where the oil accumulates
