SKIDTRUCK/SKIDCAR

An immersive driver training experience

warning sign

SKIDTRUCK and SKIDCAR offer a revolutionary system that allows those who drive vehicles on the job, whether larger vehicles such as small buses, fire engines, ambulances, or large pickup trucks/SUVs, or smaller vehicles, such as police cars or maintenance vehicles, to simulate how to drive in inclement weather conditions where loss of traction is a constant risk.

SKIDTRUCK/SKIDCAR training takes place at the Adams County Fairgrounds. But we can also bring it to you! We can perform the training on any concrete pad that is at least 200 feet by 500 feet and is free of obstructions like light poles.

“I completed our skid training yesterday. What an amazing program! I wish we had this technology when I was learning to drive and now that it’s here, I recommend everyone take the course. It challenged us to rethink how we handle a skid or sliding situation and relearn skills that will help to prevent or recover from them.”

Alan Fletcher, Fire Chief at Fairmount Fire Protection District
