LOST YOUR LICENCE?

We’ve all misplaced things at some point. Usually it’s our car keys, phone or money. But for some of you it may be your driving licence. If you still can’t find it after searching high and low, call off the search and apply for a new one at https://www.gov.uk/apply-online-to-replace-a-driving-licence.

You only need to tell the police if you think it was stolen.

Winter driving, the eyes have it!

Ah, the lovely winter weather. Darker mornings, glare from the low setting winter sun, reduced visibility in rain and fog, as well as wet and icy weather and shorter daylight hours… These all make driving conditions more difficult, particularly if you have problems with your eyesight.

So don’t risk it – get your eyes tested at least every 2 years, and see your optician if you notice any changes to your eyesight.
