Shropshire Skid Control Experience For Two

This skid control driving experience will teach you advanced driving skills that you don't get to do out on the roads, but that will make you a better driver.

This skid control driving experience in Shropshire is not only really great fun, but could also prove to be invaluable, as you will learn advanced driving skills that you may some day have to use in the real world. This skid control experience will teach you how to control a skidding car and execute some extreme manoeuvres, giving you a great advanced driving lesson.

This driving day is great fun, certainly, but it will also provide you with some really valuable driving experience. You will experience the feeling of driving on black ice at a speed of 40mph, learning driving techniques to stop you from crashing. All of your driving practice takes place under the instruction of a qualified and professional instructor, meaning you are in a controlled and safe environment while you enjoy your driving day.Your experience begins with a discussion of safety measures and the type of driving you are about to try, to make sure everyone understands how to do it not just well, but safely too! After this, you and your guest will begin your skid session that includes an in-car demo. Put your driving skills to the test around the challenging, purpose-built skid control area and braking lane. Your instructor will be on-hand throughout, to guide you as you try to master some advanced driving manoeuvres such as oversteer and understeer control, using ABS, and controlled J turns.

great skid pan day. recommended for all drivers


The experience was excellent, both fun and educational. The only thing lacking was the facilities - loos would have been useful!


I bought this for my 2 'children' who are fairly new drivers. I would thoroughly recommmend the experience. They were given expert instruction & advice and there was plenty of opportunity for them to practice their newly acquired skills under the very careful supervision of their instructor Stuart. Thank you.


Bought the experience for my dad so we did it together. We both loved the experience. Tuition was very straight forward and informative. We learnt something and had great fun doing it!! Would certainly recommend.


Really worth while trip, was apprehensive at first but was made to feel at ease and by the end was confident and able to control the biggest of skids! Would highly recommend, awesome fun.



Very informative, you walk away knowing you have learned a very important and potentially life-saving skill - as well as having a bit of fun too.


Car was very dirty, inside and out, oil and grease on the carpets/seats/doors, driving course was very short, both in time and circuit. Not what I was expecting at all.



Gave us exactly what we wanted out of the experience, was both enjoyable and educational. Instructor was very helpful and friendly at all times - Would definitely recommend it.


The experience was good because the instructor was very positive and encouraging. He gave me a lot of good pratice time and was helpful with advice. Throughly recommend this experience.
