Winter, like every year, divides the motoring world into the group that only has a driver’s license in possession, and the group whose staff can be considered real drivers. To successfully overcome winter, you need not only driving skills, but also some knowledge.

What kind? So what about legislation? And when trouble comes, do you know what to do? Last but not least, you should also know something about tires, the only connection between the car and the road. And as motorist JA Komenský would say, “school is a game”, so let’s play!
