In the event of the driver taking the wrong action resulting in danger, the instructor can end the skid at any time by releasing his finger from the controller. This would instantly return the vehicle to normal and as the tyres were not actually skidding (only simulated) traction is fully maintained enabling the vehicle to be steered and stopped easily.

The vehicle replicates all types of skid situations and responds to the correct action for recovery, starting at low speeds for the beginner and progressing to higher speeds for the advanced pupil.

It can be used on any site large or small without the need for special chemical treatments and the environmental problems that these will create. It has been used in office car parks, military parade grounds, exhibition centres and even school playgrounds.

The car can be taken to a customers own location, off loaded from the trailer and be ready for work immediately.
