When can I visit the Driving Centre?
Courses of safe driving are organised throughout the year in all weather conditions during working days as well as on weekends. Just call, agree on the best date and reserve it.
Can I rent a car or shall I bring my own car?
The main objective of the Safe Driving Centre is to teach each participant to control the own vehicle in case you will find yourself in a crisis situation. That is why it seems logical that each participant takes parts in the course with the car he/she uses most. In spite of this fact, we offer the possibility to rent a car according to the current offer which you can verify on the phone.
Can I break my own car during the training?
With each exercise/manoeuvre we count on the fact that you will not perfectly master it but the whole training centre is designed and built in a way to allow each participant to have enough of free space for any of the manoeuvres – the correct or the incorrect ones. In worst case, you will end up on a different spot than originally planned but it will still be safe without any damages.
Do my tyres wear off in the driving centre?
There is hardly a driver who would want to destroy his tyres deliberately. In order to prevent damage of tyres, we take use of sliding surface everywhere during the training. The surfaces are irrigated and become so sliding as if driving on tamped snow. Thus the whole training is carried out in safe conditions and without damaging your car.
Will you be with me in the car and give me advice what to do?
Each activity requires some kind of a system in order to achieve the wished result. Our method of working is practical also for starting drivers. At first, we will explain you inside the centre everything that we want to do outside, then we will explain you how to master those situations and at the end you will try those personally in you own car. You will have a walkie-talkie in your car and thus will hear the advice of the instructor and at the same time you will be able to ask for explanation of any unclear matters.
Can I come just to have a few slides in the centre without a course?
Parking areas during winter are mostly used for such a purpose. The course is a practical instruction how to master all situations than can occur to you in the best possible way. Without a theoretical introduction, you would leave out the link between them and loose the main objective – to learn how to master a specific crisis situation and not to learn how to get into such situations.
How long is the training?
Depends on the type of course which you will take part in. The course of safe driving STANDARD is aimed for broad public and companies and lasts one day, namely from 9.00 am, until 4.00 p.m.
