The thrill of driving on ice and aquaplaning but in complete safety
Courses held on an oil-like skid surface or with computerised skid frame
Controlling a skid is a very useful skill. Start with a safety briefing and a discussion on the cause and cures of different kinds of skids. Then, use techniques that simulate loss of car control, with the vehicle seeming to get away from you. Skidpan driving focuses on both avoidance and recovery, an expert instructor teaches the skills of driving on ice, aquaplaning and skid avoidance exercises. Courses are held either on an oil-like surface or using a computerised skid frame (looks like stabilisers on your bike, only they're not very stabilising). Some courses also include time trials to test your new skills.
