A note from our Head Instructor, Alan McCrispin:

"The Twickenham Auto Club is a great bunch of people who really enjoy the automobile in all of its forms. The members volunteer their time to teach this school and promote better driving in our community. The depth of skill within the club is pretty amazing, with many National Championship level drivers.

The price of this school is ridiculously inexpensive compared to what you would have to pay at any of the National Performance schools to get the same information. For a full day of instruction at a big name school you could pay $500 to $2000.

This school is designed to teach better & safer driving. You will learn how to use your eyes, how to safely execute an emergency lane change, how to control a slide on wet pavement, how to steer your car with just the throttle and many other things.

We always try to have a group for newer drivers who may need additional coaching. Many times, past students have told me that something from the school saved them from an accident or worse.

Feel free to come to the Friday night classroom instruction even if you cannot make the class on Saturday. You'll get 2 hours of great information and driving tips as well as a few good laughs.

I've been the chief instructor for this school for years and have been teaching performance driving over 30 years for several different racing schools.

Hope to see you there."
