  • About

    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.

    Participant Guidelines

    Anyone with a full manual driving licence is welcome. Height and weight restrictions also apply at some venues; please check when booking.


    The weather is unlikely to affect your experience. Don't despair if it's raining - this experience is even more exciting and slippery when it's wet.


    The length of the session varies from venue to venue, but as a guide it lasts between 90 minutes and three hours, including safety briefing, instruction, driving time and debrief.

    Numbers On Day

    The number of people attending tends to vary. Up to four participants share each car.


    Spectators are welcome. Facilities vary depending on the venue.

    Dress Code

    Dress warmly and comfortably. If you are on a course that uses a skidpan (as opposed to an electronic frame) wear old shoes if you can, as you might get oil or suds from the skidpan on them.

    Other Info

    Anyone under the influence of drink or drugs will not be allowed to take part.
