Premium Skid Pan Driving Experiences – Skid Control Courses save Lives!

Learning life saving driving skills can improve driver confidence in all conditions. No matter how good we think we are as drivers, heavy rain, ice and snow reduce traction, manoeuvrability and visibility making it easy for any car to skid. This Skid Pan Driving experience course has all the defensive driving techniques of the standard Skid Course and so much more! Loads more driving time to put you in control!

  1. Tim Lynch

    What a great morning with Dave and err Dave 2. Well organised, teaching you how everybody should be when we hit ice, snow or oil on the road. Learnt many things on how to drive safely and most of all it was great fun and 3 hours went so quickly. Highly recommended.

  2. Stella IAM Herefordshire

    I am writing on behalf of our team today to thank you and Craig so much for such an enjoyable morning. I know we all learned a great deal (even if I couldn’t find the garage in the challenge at the end!). My contestants really enjoyed themselves and greatly appreciated the extra time we had on the “Pan”.
