There are significant benefits of taking a skid pan course. People usually only experience a significant, serious skid in a terrifying, real life situation. Due to this fact it makes sense to experience what it is like in a safe, controlled (and often fun!) environment.
Christmas 2016 – We work in affiliation with Red Letter Days. If you are looking to buy a skid pan course, you can view their range of courses, and book online with them here – VIEW SKID PAN COURSES
Benefits of a Skid Pan Course/Session:
1. Improve confidence
2. Understand different types of skids (understeer, oversteer, four wheel drift)
3. Learn what actually is “aquaplaning”
4. Learn what causes skids
5. Learn how to control a skid
With a skid pan course you learn the theory of what causes a skid, and how to drive in a defensive way to avoid them happening in the first place. You also get hands on tuition in a specially adapted car on a skid pan, with an experienced skid control instructor – allowing you and your drivers to experience what it is like to experience a skid in total safety.
Although we don’t offer skid pan sessions, we do offer on-road defensive driving courses designed to cover skid control theory, and how to drive in a more defensive way, to avoid a skip happening in the first place. One of our on-road courses can be a good training session after a separately purchased skid pan session.
