BACK TO DRIVING SCHOOLS

Corporate Defensive Driving Experience

The M1 Concourse Corporate Defensive Driving School is designed to teach your corporate drivers how to effectively navigate a variety of hazardous, real-world driving conditions.

Our curriculum integrates a number of hands-on, advanced training exercises where participants will learn crucial driving skills. Participants are taught by professional instructors who use their skills and experiences, learned through years of professional driving, to teach the principles of defensive driving on the road.

Our program is targeted toward corporate employees that drive corporate vehicles.

All activities and drills are conducted in a controlled and safe environment.

SKID CAR EXERCISE

Participants will get behind the wheel of "skid cars", vehicles equipped with a hydraulic dolly lift system, to simulate real-world, low-traction conditions. Students will learn why skids and spins happen, how to avoid them, and how to recover in order to prevent an accident. Skills learned include:
