Our unique skid control course, explores HOW to predict real & potential hazardous driving scenarios – before costly “point of no return” incidents develop.
"Everyone should do this training. It's excellent - and I can't imagine a better way to learn and practice than with CAT. It was 100% professional and thoroughly enjoyable. Colin is such a good trainer. He put me completely at ease right from the start and explained everything really clearly. Throughout the course he made sure I'd understood what we were doing and why - and we did lots of practice recognising different types of skid and what to do in each case. I do a lot of winter driving, often in ice and snow, and this training has been invaluable. I'd thoroughly recommend it - and not just for difficult weather conditions; it's invaluable for any road and any conditions, and it can save your life. I came away from the day with more confidence and greater skills to stay safe on the road - and, what's more, the training was really good fun!"
"Do it, do it, do it. In November I took the half day performance driving training course and skid pan course. And what can I say? It was probably the best day of my life! I was beaming for about two weeks after. We were laughing the whole day and I learnt an immense amount of knowledge. I’ve gained confidence in my driving skills and discovered what my car can really do. Colin is an excellent teacher. Before I arrived I had visions of it going wrong and my car spinning into a ditch, I was nervous. But all of that was forgotten as soon as I sat behind the wheel. Colin puts you at ease, he’s a very knowledgable man with a life time of experience. He adapts his teaching skills to suit the way you learn, and won’t move on to the next step until you feel confident and ready. We really did have tremendous fun this day, and two months on, I’m still thinking about the skills he taught me every time I sit behind the wheel. I highly recommend CAT Driver Training to any skill level from novice to advanced, and especially if you love driving and want to build on your skills... you won’t be disappointed. I will definitely be signing up do to more training this year."
"I thought I could drive a car, but after a day with Colin at Cat Driver Training, I learnt more in 8hrs than I have in the last 30years.. Braking techniques on the mile straight at 100mph started the day. This is something I never thought I would have to do, but with Colin the voice of calm next to you, it all passes without a hitch. Now my understanding of ABS and braking at speed sets me up to be so much more confident on daily driving.. Taking the car on to the 2 mile oval bowl and driving in in lane 5 at 120mph, again with Colin keeping everything simple, allows you to understand the art of driving whilst looking ahead.. We then have a lesson on oversteer and understeer... fun fun fun. This was my Top Gear moment..again not something you would do normally, but seeing how the car reacts with ABS on, then off, let’s you understand your car so much more.. Moving on to the Handling circuit to learn Cornering techniques gives you your Lewis Hamilton moment. Colin makes you put the days training in to practice to get the car around the track most efficiently.. late braking, controlled acceleration, looking ahead.. Like I said at the start.. “You think you can drive a car” think again.. This day with Colin is something that should be compulsory with new drivers to give an understanding of safe driving techniques.. If you have a performance car, do yourself a favour.. have a day at CAT Driver Training to understand the limits of your car in a safe environment with a fantastic instructor .."
"Drifting and over grip limit handling Excellent insightful tuition again from Paul! I was able to explore the limits of the Caterham and my car, as well as understand the results of my inputs in detail - highly recommended!"
"Amazing learning experience! Even in my Ford Focus! The whole experience from start to finish was tailored perfectly to give me the best chance to get the most out of the session. I came into it looking to take some skills back onto the real Highway. I did the course in my Ford Focus 1.5L Diesel; and honestly wouldn’t have had it any other way! We covered so much in the session, some highlights: - Emergency braking and handling the car in such situations - Braking in inclement conditions - Understanding understeer and the role of traction control - Single input steering - Long distance vision and the impact of your eyes on the direction of the car - Extension of IPSGA (IPSGLA!) - High speed cornering (both in my car and the Nissan 350Z) Colin was an excellent teacher and really took the time to explain the dynamics of the car, which was thoroughly interesting. I’d love to go again!"
"My time at Millbrook I had a wonderful time at the facility, i really enjoyed the drifting section of the course and learnt a lot about cars and overall road safety. As a direct result from passing this course my cornering score on my black box increased from 50 to 100 so there are clear results and benefits. I would highly recommend this course to any new driver as it helped build my confidence on the road and developed my skills as a driver."
