About SKIDCAR SYSTEM®
Teaching Drivers to Think
Developed in Sweden in the 1980s, the SKIDCAR SYSTEM® is the most effective driving training program ever created. Unlike other programs, which merely simulate experiences to develop a driver's motor skills, The SKIDCAR SYSTEM allows drivers to experience real-life car control issues, and teaches them techniques that help them maintain control.
- SKIDCAR™ now operates in 35 Countries. In North America (Canada, USA, and Mexico) 260 SKIDCARS and 8 SKIDTRUCKS are used in 42 States, 5 Provinces, including 35 Colleges and Technical Schools. Over 27,000 drivers are getting a lesson each year in a SKIDCAR.
- SKIDCARS are used by Military, Law Enforcement, Protective Services, Fire, EMS, Municipal, Private Driving schools, and Racing Circuits.
- With more and more public safety agencies facing tighter budgets, SKIDCAR is an excellent cost-effective way to provide essential training. Maintenance is low, with minimal wear and tear on a vehicle. Plus, there's no need to maintain special driving ranges or skidpans. The only need is a suitable paved area.
- In a SKIDCAR, drivers experience hazardous road conditions at much lower speeds. Because of the safety factor, there's virtually no risk of injury or resultant medical cost.
- In today's legal environment, it's more important than ever to properly train your staff for the hazardous driving conditions that come with a job. The SKIDCAR SYSTEM is simply the safest, most effective way to provide this training.
