Car Control @ Pitt Meadows
Jul 15 @ 8:30 am – 4:00 pm



Challenge your driving skills and attitudes by starting with our entry level advanced driver training program which we call Car Control school, a day packed with fun and excitement, suitable for all drivers. Our first level Driving School courses bring together the fundamentals of confident, safe driving via a series of exercises designed to improve your skills and allow you to explore the limits of vehicle control.

In our Car Control Program we cover key elements vital to improving your driving, such as seating position, steering technique, and vehicle dynamics. Exercises include vision, emergency braking, emergency avoidance and handling corners. The program also takes an in-depth look at typical driving scenarios encountered during inner-city driving and how to respond to them. After the new skills exercises, we finish the day with practice time, including a slalom where the objective is to compete against yourself for consistency, challenging you to utilize the skills learned over the day.

Training provided by the skilled professionals at Driving Unlimited.
