SKIDCAR SYSTEM® Comparison

For more than 20 years SKIDCAR™ has supplied an extremely realistic and practical approach to driver training.  The SKIDCAR SYSTEM® remains the only driver training product on the market that gives the options for a complete, modern, practical, and safe driver training experience.  The SKIDCAR allows drivers to experience varying levels of grip, and learn a safe and consistent approach to reacting to those scenarios.  We thought it valuable to compare a modern SKIDCAR to other training equipment so our current and future customers can see why SKIDCAR is truly like no other Driver Training device on the market.
