Safety is above all prevention: this training analyzes the main road accidents situations and the most risky behaviors. This is provided by the special multimedial theory based on over thirty years of experience in the sector and over 200 videos of driving errors of our pupils, heritage of our archive.

However, safety behind the wheel is also based on the ability to react to emergencies and this course teaches the basic techniques of safe driving by reproducing, in the Safe Driving Center, the main dangers and the unexpected that we have to face on the road.

It also develops the correct evaluation about speeds, stopping distances and the difficulty of driving in critical wet conditions.

All our courses can be attended by people with physical disabilities thanks to the SpecialMente program
  • THEORY. Interactive and multimedial. Adhesion principles and tires characteristics. Analysis of vehicle dynamics. Traction. Driving techniques, safety lines, loss of adherence, understeer, oversteer, braking techniques, electronic driving aid systems. Driving position and steering techniques. Tires, pressures, run flat and winter tires. Driving situations in difficult conditions: snow, aquaplaning, rain, ice, fog, traffic. Driving on the highway, in the city and on state roads. Situations of danger in traffic and analysis of potential risks. EcoDriving, electric vehicles and plug in hybrid. Screening and analysis of movies from our experiences archive and EYE Tracking Films.
  • EMERGENCY BRAKING. On a wet and low coefficient of grip surface, at 80 km/hr the pupil will brake in front of a sudden obstacle but, failing to stop in the few available meters, he also needs to try to avoid the obstacle during the braking phase. This exercise teaches to take full advantage of the car’s braking potential and to obtain less stopping spaces from the ABS.
  • UNDERSTEER. In a steering pad of 80 meters in diameter, irrigated and with slippery asphalt, you will test all the possible losses of adhesion of the front: understeer in the insertion of a curve, understeer in transit and understeer under acceleration.
  • OVERSTEER WITH SKID CAR. The skid car mounted on the rear wheels of the car allows the pupil to get sudden loss of adhesion of the rear axle at low speed, in such conditions that do not create anxiety or danger. This way the learner develops sensitivity to the heel and the automatism of the counter-steering maneuver in emergency; it is also ideal to learn the right counter steering technique: the crossover technique.
  • OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE**. A sudden obstacle consisting of a barrier of water commanded by the instructor with a radio control is the emergency to which you have to react: you need a strong steering technique to avoid the obstacle but you must also control the vehicle becoming unstable during the next realignment.

**  This exercise could be replaced with a serie “Handling” Track laps.
