With rising insurance, repair, and medical costs, reducing or preventing accidents in corporate fleet vehicles is critical. The professional instructors at Autobahn have developed an extensive one day driving program that covers skills training typically found in a multiple day program. Our Driver Development management team and instructors will enhance and customize the training program to address the specific issues and needs of your employees, and match your corporations safety policies.
Drivers enjoy approximately two hours of classroom, one hour of vehicle maintenance discussion, and three hours of actual driving time.

Participants rotate through four drills in succession. In the first of two entertaining and informative classroom sessions our driving professionals explain the physics of why cars behave the way they do (Vehicle Dynamics) and how to properly control them. After lunch, the second classroom discussion covers the problems caused by other drivers and how to deal with them.
Throughout the rest of the day participants practice accident avoidance and emergency lane change techniques, threshold braking under low traction conditions, and skid control and recovery utilizing our state of the art dynamic skid training vehicle, all on our Vehicle Dynamics Skid Pad. Additionally, participants learn about the basics of caring for their vehicle during our vehicle maintenance segment.
