ADSS is designed to introduce and develop car control skills, but AC3 will help take your car control to the next level!

Description of Exercises
Theory - Each session begins with a "chalk talk", where our instructors explain about vehicle dynamics, the techniques students will be taught, and summarize the exercises for the day.
Skid Pad - The practical exercises include spending part of the session on the skid pad learning about: understeer, oversteer, steering with the throttle, secondary effects, "the line", and power-slides. These basic building blocks are key to learning how to bring your car under control, when the unexpected happens, and how to establish whatever cornering attitude you want to put the car in.
Car Control Course - The practical exercises also include spending part of the session applying your car control skills will put your skidpad practice to the test: braking while turning, inducing rotation, countering understeer and applying oversteer, and other techniques by navigating through this challenging course.
This is a driver education school and is not practice for any racing or speed contest.
