Winter Driving Skills

Improve your winter driving skills by completing driving exercises on an ice covered skid track. The winter driving course is suitable for all drivers from beginners to experienced. This one day course covers preparing your vehicle and yourself for winter driving. Common winter driving challenges are also covered, including how different vehicles react to snow and ice. Winter driving techniques are explained in the classroom and then skill building exercises are practiced on a skid track.
