Skid Control Experiences – Dealing with the UK’s Winter Weather!

Industry: Automotive

With the UK in the midst of real wintery weather, here’s how you can drive safely in the snow and ice.

United Kingdom (PRUnderground) December 16th, 2010

As the UK’s weather forecasters keep announcing freezing temperatures, snow and ice, many people find driving in their cars a treacherous mission, as they just don’t have enough experience dealing with how a car reacts in the snow and ice, going into a skid and controlling that skid.

Into the Blue is renowned as a leading activity gift voucher company and their skid control activities offer a valuable experience that can be put into practice on the public roads when faced with driving in unfavourable conditions such as severe rainfall leading to aquaplaning, snow and black ice.

The sessions, led by expert and advanced driving instructors, show drivers how and why cars lose grip and start to skid uncontrollably and then how to control it. And indeed, you will discover that how most people would react naturally is exactly the opposite of what you should do to control the skid with maximum control.

Into the Blue have skid control centres around the UK with a variety of skid lessons on offer including intensive one to one courses, taster skid control sessions as a small group and half day experiences too.

Some skid control schools will allow drivers to use their own car or the school car on the specially prepared skid pan, whilst others have special school cars set up on cradles to simulate different skid scenarios, such as encountering ice with a rear-wheel drive car.

Although these skid control activities are primarily offered as an exciting leisure activity, with the wintery weather set to continue in the UK, buying a skid control lesson as a Christmas present for someone this festive season is a fun, yet highly informative and useful gift.

Into the Blue offers skid control tuition at eight different skid control centres across the UK from Scotland to Wiltshire. Taster sessions cost from £74 per person, whilst one to one instruction starts at £135 per person.

Into the Blue skid control experiences start at just £74 per person and are offered as an activity gift voucher valid for a full year direct from
