Skid pan training

What can I expect on the day?

On arrival at the skid control venue near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, there is a short safety briefing and welcome meeting.  Then your expert driving instructor will demonstrate skid control and braking practises with you, on a one to one basis. After that, you and your group take turns. You will have the opportunity to drive hands on, controlling and correcting the skids and slides as well as emergency braking.

This course covers two types of skid control, using both front and rear wheel drive vehicles on a low grip skid pan. We do not use cradles. This course is ideal for all drivers, and it’s a great and enjoyable way of learning practical skills. Leaving you knowing just what to do if the need arises.

After a debrief, certificates are presented.
