OUR TOP TIPS FOR DRIVING THROUGH WATER

Try to work out how deep the water is. In static shallower water, explore on foot and use a stick to gauge the depth - or watch another vehicle go through. It’s a good idea to keep a pair of wellies or waders in the boot.

If there are other vehicles ahead, wait until they’ve left the water. Unsettled water can make a safe passage more challenging.

WADING

'Drive through the water very slowly at first, then build up momentum.' Do not slip/ride the clutch as this reduces control of the vehicle. Ease off the accelerator as you reach the other side.

A Land Rover 4x4 can manage submersion of between 50cm and 90cm. Refer to your manual to find your maximum wading depth.
