On the day, you will take part in three dynamic workshops led by road safety professionals:
Safer Driving workshop
This interactive session looks at dispelling many of the myths and misunderstandings around speed, drink/drug driving, mobile phones, seat belts/in car safety and attitudes towards other road users.
Kick Plate/Ice Hill
The Kick Plate is a movable metal plate set flush with the road surface and triggered remotely as the car travels over it thereby generating the effect of a loss of wheel traction.
The Ice Hill generates the feel of sheet ice with controlled water jets. You will explore car control under extreme road conditions. You will also learn to understand how the car handles and how ABS (anti-lock brakes) work.
You will also learn how to carry out simple and potentially lifesaving vehicle safety checks.
This is not an assessment or driving lesson, but a chance to drive on predetermined routes, comprising both motorway and rural roads, whilst under the guidance of a highly trained Police Advanced Driver. They will suggest advanced techniques for you to integrate into your driving, together with building skills of observation, anticipation, and awareness to help make you a safer, more confident driver.
Each of the elements is programmed to run for 1 hour and you will be using cars provided by Volvo Cars UK.
Register your interest for the 2023 events and we will contact you when dates are released.
