This course will focus on the dynamics of the vehicle and how the driver can better manage it when situations do become more threatening
. The physics of that mass in motion plays a huge role in controlling it; the driver must have a good understanding of this to have any success. Driving our SKID VEHICLE
in our safe and controlled environment, will allow the driver to gain a better understanding of the skids that can occur, becoming more sensitive to the vehicle's changes and applying the proper inputs to successfully control it.
N Control Driving School
is the ONLY Licensed driving school that brings both curriculums together. Being state licensed allows us to do all of the on-the-road skills training needed to help you pass the required MVD road test to receive your license, but we also incorporate the car control training to create the most comprehensive driver training program. Even Edmunds.com recommends "that for new drivers, you should enroll them into an advanced driving course that teaches controlling a skid, threshold braking and accident avoidance techniques". That's exactly what this Car Control Course does and is designed for. In fact, we are the only licensed driving school to be recommended by Consumer Reports. (see Recent Media)
WE DON'T USE SIMULATORS
, there are just too many other senses that the drivers have to feel in performing these maneuvers, that by sitting behind a two dimensional computer screen limits them to just their visual ques and most of the time are not even close to being as realistic as driving a real car. Driving a vehicle is not a video game and should not be taught like it's one.
WE USE REAL VEHICLES TEACHING REAL LIFE SAVING TECHNIQUES
, active driving skills that could some day save your teen's life.
This course is a 3hr. program taught by professional drivers, these are instructors that teach law enforcement personnel, emergency rescue and even the elite Special Forces that protect our country. This course is incorporated into our core classes (101
, 103-A & 103-B
) or can be taken separately and is also ideal for drivers that already have their licenses.
