Our training vehicle
We are proud to be in a position to offer our state of the art vehicle.
A specially converted Renault Megane, is equipped with the very latest computerised system. At the flick of a switch the car transforms from a road vehicle into a fully functioning skid car.
There are no oily skidpans or cumbersome frames; the vehicle operates on any tarmac or concrete area without causing damage or leaving any signs of use. There is no noise from the vehicle other than the normal engine noise associated with a running vehicle and at all times the vehicle is under the total control of the instructor. As an added precaution the vehicle it is fitted with dual controls.
We believe the car is a valuable tool for driver development and whilst our courses are enjoyable we do not use the vehicle for stag parties or fun days.
Our vehicle is totally mobile we can travel to you and set up on your car park, loading bays, corporate areas etc or if you have staff located throughout the country we can work with you to arrange areas to use at strategic locations. All we need is a tarmac or concrete surface, minimum size approx 80 meters by 40 metres. We leave no signs of use; in fact, the vehicle has even been used on a drill square without any adverse effects. In the past agencies have negotiated the use of other company/local authority car park for use on the day.
