Gravel is a constantly changing, low-grip surface, so drive at a slow speed.

OUR TOP TIPS FOR DRIVING ON GRAVEL

Leave the tarmac behind and off-road like a pro with our expert tips for driving on gravel below.

USING TERRAIN RESPONSE

Select Grass/Gravel/Snow on Terrain Response and use the highest gear possible for the conditions.

'Gravel is a constantly changing, low-grip surface, so drive at a slow speed.' This reduces the risk of losing traction when you stop, accelerate or take a corner.

Always leave a generous gap between you and other vehicles to minimise the risk of damage from flying gravel.

Avoid dust clouds as they reduce visibility.

CHOOSE YOUR TYRES

The most effective tyres on gravel are those with a large tread as this helps to clear away the looser gravel particles and grip on the harder, more stable parts of the road. Wider tyres are more effective than thinner tyres, since grip increases with the area of the contact patch of the tyres.

Make sure your tyres are properly inflated, but also be mindful that over-inflation can reduce grip.
