Never confuse confidence with competence. Our Winter Driving School has been developed with over 25 years of experience in skid control education. This course will give you the skills and proper instincts necessary to deal with changing road conditions and harsh winter driving.
After a short classroom session, you’ll be driving your own vehicle (preferably on snow tires!) on our safe and open skidpad and slalom areas through a variety of exercises. You’ll learn how your particular vehicle handles and reacts on snow and ice, as well as how the safety systems installed in your vehicle (ABS, Trac, DSC, etc) function for and against you in different situations.
You’ll also be performing Accident Avoidance maneuvers, a vital and potentially life-saving part of any driver education (and one that works as well in the summer as the winter). The day will wrap up with a drive around a series of open roads here at our facility. Students go up and down hills and around corners, practicing the skills and reactions that you learned on the skidpad and slalom courses.
The cost of the Winter Driving School is $699. The class runs from approximately 9am-4pm. Students should be aware other students may ride in their car, and you will need to remove all loose items prior to the course. We do require having winter tires on your vehicle as you will get much more out of the course (and have a safer driving experience all winter long).
Although we do our best to keep you and your vehicle safe, there is always a chance for vehicle damage. Students are responsible for any damage to your vehicle themselves or by another student’s vehicle (no one else will drive your vehicle other than our instructors), please only participate if you understand this risk. You will be asked to sign a waiver upon arrival that you have assumed this risk. Students must have a valid drivers license.
