Aftermath Drive

​Reluctant to drive after experiencing a car crash?

Has a car crash robbed you of your sense of control and peace of mind?

The Aftermath Drive – Skid Avoidance Defensive Driving Course is your antidote to the anxiety, fear, and doubts you might have since your car accident. This class will help you:

  • Improve your defensive driving skills
  • Restore your driving confidence
  • Remove post-crash anxiety and fear

Thanks to our unique technology – the SkidCar™ driving system, we can cover all areas of your concern, working together behind the wheel to practice reacting to difficult driving situations.

Our driving coaches are familiar with working with both new and experienced drivers. You'll learn how to prevent a skid, react to a skid, and how to drive in adverse driving conditions. These are skills that can literally save your life.

This four-hour course will give you the skills and knowledge needed to manage any difficult driving condition!

What to Expect from the Aftermath Drive Skid Avoidance Defensive Driving Course

After quickly covering some classroom material, we'll go out to a contained driving area where you can get behind the wheel of our SkidCar. In a completely safe and encouraging setting, you can experience how it feels to drive on a slippery road and other difficult driving situations.

We use the SkidCar(™) to simulate a skid – except we do it very, very slowly (5 - 10 mph). This makes it much easier to learn how to recognize and respond to skids and other dangerous situations. As you become more comfortable driving, the coach can gradually increase the vehicle speed.

Some of the exercises included in the Aftermath Drive Course include:

  • Accident avoidance
  • Basic and critical breaking
  • Defensive driving
  • Driving effectively with ABS (anti-lock braking system), ESC (electronic stability control), and other current drive control aids
  • Low-speed and high-speed dynamics
  • Maneuvering and critical braking
  • Objective distracted driver exercises
  • Optical targeting
  • Skid avoidance
  • Skid control and recovery
  • Stable platform concepts
  • Use of sight exercises
  • … and more!

It's impossible to control the various factors that cause a car accident. All we can do is have the right attitude and be prepared. Our Skid Avoidance Defensive Driving Course can help you on both counts.

Tip: It's also possible that you can receive a lower vehicle insurance rate after completing the Skid Avoidance Defensive Driving Course.
