Extreme driving lesson
Driving is often an extreme sport – even for those who have nothing to do with extreme sports. Legally licensed drivers often exhibit “skills” that are far from ideal, which is why actual extreme driving courses are gaining popularity with people of different ages and social status.
Skilled drivers are taught to cope with extreme situations in theory and in practice. The courses include driving on an icy track, coping with
skidding on different vehicles and corrective maneuvering at high speeds.
Those who haven’t driven for a long time can take courses aimed at helping them re-acquire their skills. The school instructors advise extra courses both in the beginning of the winter and summer seasons, as well as when a client switches to a new vehicle.
Another must-do is a summer and winter extreme driving course on a track. In the summer, drivers are taught emergency acceleration and
braking skills while keeping their cars’ various safety systems in mind, avoiding road obstacles while driving fast, speedy maneuvering on the road, and speedy turns and driving backwards.
Winter practical courses includes emergency accelerating and breaking on ice, getting out of a skid on slippery surfaces and the technique of a 180 degree turn to stabilize a vehicle.
