Winter Safe Driving Experience

Have you ever felt nervous or “out-of control” while driving on winter roads? Learn how to drive with control and confidence to stay on the road and avoid accidents when bad weather strikes.

Every course starts with a presentation to establish some basic principles of driving techniques and vehicle dynamics. Only then can you master the critical relationships between the driver and the vehicle and the road.

Some of the topics we will cover include basic driving techniques, vehicle dynamics, vehicle systems, how cars “skid”, how to avoid obstacles, and how to keep your vehicle ready for winter. In the field, using our prepared surfaces you will take what you learned in the classroom and apply it to some exciting exercises that simulate difficult winter driving conditions.

A Winter Safe course at The 4×4 Center Driving School is a great idea for new drivers, teenage drivers, and seasoned drivers alike. A few hours with us can completely change your confidence for a lifetime of winter driving. The skills we teach are invaluable, and the experience is unforgettable.
