1 Skid Control Training

This is a unique skid pad driving training course where you will not only have fun testing your skid control ability but also learn the full range of skills needed to stay in control of a car when it goes beyond its limit. You will also learn how to master the use of ABS for emergency avoidance!

First there's a briefing from your instructor explaining exactly what happens when a car skids, and tips are given on how to avoid a dangerous skid situation on the road. Your instructor will also explain how electronic driver aids like ABS and ESP (Electronic Stability Program) found in most of todays cars work and what it can do for you! You are then split into groups and introduced to your track instructor.


Session 1 - Skid Control Training 

During this session your instructor will help you master the basics of car control including over and under steer. Most modern road cars will under steer in the majority of situations and if you know a few basics you can soon get the hang of controlling it. With practice you will find everything much easier and more natural.

Your instructor will encourage you to let the car slide more and even spin around! This will give you the confidence and techniques needed to bring the car back in control from some seemingly impossible situations!

Session 2 - Anti Lock Braking System

On this session you will learn how to master the use of ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) in an emergency. We set up an avoidance exercise to demonstrate just what this system is capable of - so you know how to get the most out of it!


2 Advanced On Road Driving

This experience is a one to one with the instructor for the whole course duration and uses the participants own car.

The course is an advanced driving lesson which takes an exciting and fresh approach to on road driving methods. Its content will help to improve driver awareness and observation skills out on the road in all traffic and weather condition and also guide you toward becoming a smoother and more accurate driver.

Skid Control Course - Testimonials:

I feel so much better prepared if we have a really cold winter again this year. Everyone should do a course like this. I wish I knew about it last year. Can't recommend it enough

Tara O'Leary

The course was very good. I have quite extensive experience on driving in icy conditions but wasn't quite sure if I can still manage - being so many years in Ireland. The slippery part turned out to be the easy part. This is probably programmed somewhere in my spinal cord. But - to my surprise - I didn't know how to brake in perfect, dry conditions and make an emergency stop. I learned to drive well before the ABS-era and modern cars require quite a different braking technique than used to be when I got my licence 30 years ago. Extremely useful and I would probably like to do a little bit more practising.

Juha Junttila

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was well worth it. The staff are very courteous and professional and the course is well set up. Brilliant idea. Well done!

Bernie Downes

I really enjoyed the driving course and felt I learnt a few useful things to do in order to prevent an accident from happening. The guys giving the course were very professional and friendly.

Carmel Moran

Thank you, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and left with the impression of having learnt something. Thumbs up from me, and thank you! Hopefully we will not need to put in practice what we learnt.

Elisabetta Ravarino

Great course and very enjoyable as well as being informative. I hope to take my 3 kids there when they are back home at Christmas just to get them used to icy roads and heavy braking.

John McEvoy

Really enjoyed the driving course and learned a lot too. The instructors knew their stuff and really put me at ease as I was very apprehensive. Carmel even thought she had a habit of 'coasting' and Padraic gave her some time at the end to see if there was a problem.
