Skid Car Control Training Courses in Northern Ireland

Road safety is a big issue in modern day life, and with the ability to recognise, recover and most importantly prevent an accident situation we can steer you in the right direction. At Sandy Arthur Training Services we offer an extensive training course designed to improve awareness and reactions in even the best of drivers.

Awareness and Reaction Driver Training

Our company boasts the only Northern Irish Skid Car facility, with fully qualified instructors ranging from 5 to 25 years’ experience.

Our state-of-the-art Skid-Car frame, allows us to demonstrate the benefits of ESC as well as the possibilities of human or driver error.

We've recently taken delivery of the most advanced Skid Car in the world and can now offer expert tuition in utilising Electronic Stability Control, as fitted to most modern cars.

ESC intervenes when it detects loss of steering control, such as when the vehicle is not going where the driver is steering. This may happen, for example, when skidding during emergency evasive swerves, under steer or over steer during poorly judged turns on slippery roads, or hydroplaning.

Whether you've been driving for 50 minutes or 50 years every day can bring a new situation, and it's important that you are able to react instantly and instinctively to regain control of your vehicle.

With the use of the latest Skid Car technology we can simulate many different hazardous situations and teach you the driver how to recognise, overcome and most importantly prevent that possibly fatal skid situation.

Based on a half day/ 3.5 hour course, we offer training covering the following situations...

  • Under steer, over steer
  • Moving off on compact snow or ice
  • Evasive action
  • Cadence / Pulse braking
  • Total loss of control

When you arrive at our training centre you'll be shown a short DVD which explains the causes of skid situations. After this we give you an introduction to the car and its workings, then it's time to take the wheel and begin your Skid Car experience!

Understanding that not everyone can have the latest car with the latest technology we can tailor our Skid Car course to suit your driving needs.
