A skid pan is an artificially slippery track which replicates driving on snow/ice or hitting a patch of oil. Since the driving speeds are less than 50 km/h and the track is so slippery, there is very little wear on tyres and very low risk of vehicle damage. However the fun factor is extreme as you attempt to control your car with little or no traction.

During the 4 hour session you will learn through experience how to recognize and control skids. This is a unique experience which not only enhances driving skills but makes people aware of their limitations and human reactions to adverse situations.

The session covers:

• Driving Vision, Steering and Posture
• Skid and Slide Recognition (Understeer, Oversteer)
• Skid Prevention Techniques
• Skid Control (Reactive Throttle Control, Steering correction and Balance Points)

Many drivers repeat this session again and again for the fun and experience. The Skid Pan Experience also allows people who have completed our Advanced Car Control course to repeat the skid pan component and refine their skills.

Our Skid Pan Experience is commonly completed by car clubs and social groups. Corporate groups often attend as part of conferences or team building activities. A great idea for 18th or 21st birthday parties.

Course Location:

BRISBANE (QLD): Mt. Cotton Driver Training Centre: Ideally located 45 minutes from the Brisbane CBD and 45 minutes from Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.

PLEASE NOTE: Centre Management has banned drifting at this venue and implemented a 90dB noise limit on participating vehicles. Any car deemed to exceed the noise limits will be prevented from further driving. SDT will allow any affected participant to continue to use our training cars. No refund will be provided if your car is too loud. These rules apply to all hirers of the facility.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ):

Who can attend?

This course is usually undertaken as a follow-on from a Defensive Driving Course (like the SAFE DRIVE TEST DRIVE Driver Safety Program) which focuses on the essential driving theory and proactive driving strategies.

All participants must hold at least a Provisional licence. Also, private participants under 21-years-old must have completed a Defensive Driving Course (proof required - car club participants are exempt).

How many people per course?

To allow personalised training, each public session is limited to a maximum of 12 drivers*. Car Club and Group bookings can elect to have less participants (fees remain unchanged for group booking) and allow each person more driving time. For example we have had groups of 6 attend, with each person paying more to double their driving time.

*Course will be rescheduled if minimum participant numbers are not reached

When are courses conducted?

Most courses are held on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays. Individuals can book into the Skid Pan Experience on dates when the Advanced Car Control course is offered (the skid pan experience is run as half day part of the full day advanced course). New dates can be formed for group bookings. Once booked in, attendance details and a map will be sent to each participant.

Do I use my own car?

We offer 2 options:
1) You use your car and can sample one of ours for one of your skidpan sessions.
2) You hire a rear-wheel drive car from us for all of your skid pan experience. Please note other drivers will also access this car when not being used by you.
