South Dakota Driving Conditions Test

Different weather conditions can have a big impact on driving safety. For these reasons it’s a big deal for new drivers to gain experience driving in all types of weather.

In rainy weather, you will want to drive slower and increase your following distance. A wet road is a slippery road, and it can be harder to stop or turn quickly. When driving in snowy conditions, you’ll be safer driving slower so you have more time to apply the brakes. In some cases winter weather might require you to use different tires, or even chains, to get traction on snow covered roads. And in high winds, it’s important to be aware of big trucks and buses that could be blown into your path.
