During this experience you'll master driving techniques to control your vehicle in the event of a skid on a purpose-built skid course. Feel what it is like to hit black ice at 40mph and learn how to avoid a crash. This enjoyable experience will equip you with valuable experience that can do nothing but increase and improve your driving skill, heightening your chances in the unfortunate event of a skid. The course is perfect for those with an interest in car control, and an interest in improving their own driving technique. Key skills will be gained from a qualified instructor, including how to cope with dangerous conditions such as black ice, as well as how to deal with a car that is aquaplaning. Let it prepare you for the worst...while having a jolly good time!

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your day will begin with a thorough safety briefing covering all aspects of handling the car and the tricky terrain that you are about to traverse! This lesson is all about learning the techniques to control a vehicle on difficult surfaces, and how to avoid a crash in such events. You will start behind the wheel with a 90min one-to-one lesson with the instructor at your side offering expert advice to improve your skills. Expect to be using the basic principles of over and under steer here, as well as ABS and how 'defensive driving' aids the avoidance of particular incidents. This experience will be tailored to your needs and to your specific driving skill.

Question: I am looking for a 50th birthday gift for my sister. Could you please provide more information about the availability/ dates for this experience since she works and has three kids so might struggle to attend if very restricted. Many thanks

Private Skid Control Driving Experience - Shropshire

A very informative and fun experience for me and my son. We were taught and then allowed to experience various forms of skids wiht the opportunity to practise how to deal with them. This was with a knowledgeable but very relaxed and patient instructor, Stuart Walker. Highly recommended.

I had great fun doing this!! I think everyone should have a go! I only wish I'd had longer there. As a relatively new driver, I now feel more confident in my skills as winter approaches.
