This is our Winter Skills specific Full Day of Advanced Driver Training for BMW Car Club of BC members and other car enthusiasts.
Work on your driving skills and attitudes with a specific Winter Skills school, a full day session packed with fun and excitement, suitable for all drivers. This special version of our first Car Control course brings together the fundamentals of confident, safe driving in an exciting session designed to allow you to explore the limits of vehicle control that apply to winter driving using the wet skid pad.
This is a special Winter Skills version of our Car Control program which is part of our graduated programs for drivers.

The Winter Skills day is packed with both opportunities to learn, and FUN while you are doing the learning. Instruction is provided for us by the skilled professionals at Driving Unlimited who also teach for BMW, Mercedes., Mazda and several other manufacturers.

There is no better way to explore skid control, over and under steer and slip and slide that can happen on wet slippery winter roads in a safe controlled way under the supervision of a skilled instructor.
How will your car react? How will you react when the road is slippery?
How does the stability control and ABS affect things? This course lets you find out on a large flat course in a safe environment.
Training provided by the skilled professionals at Driving Unlimited.
