    I find that hard to believe, read your policy details I don't think you will find anything about do not drive in bad weather. If you don't keep your car serveried and have a current MOT that is a requirement of taking out car insurance. You agree to keep the car in a road worthy condition, tyres, wiper blades, brakes, steering lights and serviced as required.

    Hello @Annmarie12 Pleased to meet you.  I am not sure about this.  I assume if you do not have a road worthy car.  

    This could be an issue.  Check and clear away snow.  Check lights and wipers as @wilko says.  Good advice.  Check also exhaust pipe, blocked snow.  Also just remember to wipe away snow from roof and side windows.

    Seen that slide down windscreen covered up while still driving.

    What ever you do keep warm and safe

    Simple do not drive if you have to.

    Take care
