Driving Tips to Reduce Wear and Tear

Whether your MOT is just around the corner, or you are looking for ways to bring down your vehicle maintenance costs, these driving tips will help you to reduce wear and tear on your tyres, brakes, clutch, engine and more.

Drive carefully within the speed limit

If you are in a hurry, it is tempting to push the boundaries of the speed limit in order to reach your destination on time. Not only is this illegal, it also causes unnecessary wear on your tyres. The brakes also need to work much harder to bring your car to a complete stop.

Keep Tyres at the Correct Pressure

Take a look at your owner’s manual to find out the recommended tyre pressure, and check your tyres on a monthly basis to keep them correctly inflated. Tyres that are not inflated correctly will puncture more easily and are going to wear down quickly, whereas over inflated tyres will cause problems with braking and handling.

Don’t ignore changes

Is the car driving differently to normal? Hearing an unusual noise? If you notice an abnormality in your vehicle while driving, visit your local garage just to check everything is okay. It is better to fix a small problem now than suffer more permanent or expensive damage later.

Change gear at the right time

After years of driving, we can all slip into habits that are not good for the car we drive. One of these can be revving too high or too low – this causes strain on the engine and will also waste fuel. Reduce the risk of damage to your vehicle by listening to the engine and changing gear at the right time.

Switch off in traffic jams

Turning off the engine while stuck in traffic has many advantages. First, it is better for the engine to switch it off and then on again – it is not healthy to keep the engine idle in a jam. Secondly, while the engine is off you are also saving your clutch and brakes.

Attend extra driving courses

Whether you consider yourself a good driver or you are fully aware of your bad habits, a driving course is ideal for picking up tips for more economical driving. By attending refresher lessons, Pass Plus or a motorway driving course, you will not only become a more responsible driver but you could also save money on your insurance costs.

Get regular services

If you want to reduce wear and tear on your car to help with passing your MOT, we recommend having regular services to keep everything in good condition. A service is not too expensive, and can take care of minor issues that if left unacknowledged could cause more serious damage to the car.
