What is a Car Control Clinic?
At this event, you can expect to improve your driving skills, increase your confidence, and experience your car’s capabilities in a fun, safe and stress-free environment. Through our classroom sessions, car-control exercises and course practice, you will learn skills and techniques that will be applicable to real-world driving situations. Our classroom instructor will discuss proper hand, mirror and seating positions, looking ahead, cornering techniques, oversteer and understeer, accident avoidance and much more. Our experienced driving instructors will help you master the car control exercises which will include a simulated emergency lane change, a slalom, a decreasing-radius corner, and threshold braking. In the afternoon, we’ll do all the exercises in succession in one big course.

What should I bring?
Your car with a full tank of gas and good tire tread, your driver’s license, sunscreen, a hat and if you have one or can borrow one, a Snell 2010 or newer helmet. A limited number of helmets are available; let us know if you will need one.

What shouldn't I bring?
When you arrive, you will need to empty your car and it will need to remain empty during the event, so limit valuables to a small purse or wallet that will fit in your glove box.

Will my insurance be valid?
