Individual Skid Training
Most drivers consider themselves to be competent — or better — but how would they react in an emergency? Would they be able to control their car if it started to slide on a wet or icy road?
The Alconbury Driving Centre enables drivers to test their skills in safety at the wheel of the Centre’s skid car.
The skid car is a normal road car, mounted on a hydraulic frame that enables the instructor to lift the weight of the car off the tyres and create skids and slides as if driving on ice, water or oil.
We offer two levels of skid training the “Experience” a one-off session shared with 3 others and the follow on “Serious-Side” course with three seperate one hour sessions to develop your skills further.

THE SKID-CAR EXPERIENCE
If you don’t know what you’re doing when driving on wet roads or in icy conditions you can easily lose control of your car.
You could be driving along quite happily and something happens that means you have to brake hard or swerve to avoid danger… what would you do if your car started to skid or slide?
The ‘skid-car’ is a completely safe, high-tech, way of learning how to deal with all those situations.
We can set the controls so that you get a gentle slide, or, if you want the full monty, just tell us.
Whatever you choose, you will have some great fun, an unforgettable experience, and you’ll never drive the same again!
Three hours: £120 per person, including VAT
THE ‘SERIOUS SIDE’ SKID-CAR
Controlling a skid needs instant, almost instinctive, driving skills.
If you are keen to learn to react instinctively to a skid, you need to do more than one session so we provide an affordable programme, which is spread out over a few weeks. This is an intensive programme and, although it is great fun, you will be pushed hard to achieve real skills. We strongly recommend that you have already completed our ‘Skid Car Experience’ or some other basic training in a skid car or you may find it ‘too hot to handle!’
In the end you will be a more instinctive driver and much more capable of controlling the situation — so that you come out of it unharmed.
Three one-hour sessions: total cost £174 per person, including VAT
