EXPLANATION OF TRAINING TECHNIQUES

This course is designed to teach car control techniques that can be used in emergency situations.  The student will use the vehicle that they normally drive to learn the limits of that vehicle.  Max Maxwell’s Motorsports & Driving School Advanced Vehicle Operations course is conducted at our training facilities in Millington Tennessee.

REASONS FOR TAKING THE CAR CRASH AVOIDANCE COURSE

CONCENTRATION

Do this right, and the brainpower you devote to the course will be monumental.  It’s exhausting, but stimulating and fun also.  You have to eliminate distractions.  Whereas responsible public-road driving is all about attuned to distractions and processing them and knowing what you’ll do if that SUV moves over, if you round a curve and find debris in the road, or something falls of the truck in front of you.  If it does will you be able to handle that emergency situation without panicking.  This is the place to learn these life saving car control skills and also learn the limits of your vehicle.

REPETITION

Training requires repetitions:  this is how driving skills develop.  Doing the same car control driving skill multiple times allows you to experiment (turning a little sooner here, braking later there).  This course allows you to see exactly what the effects are if you give the vehicle too much throttle or turn the steering wheel too much.  This closed training course is the place to learn the limits of your vehicle and your driving skills.

RESPONSIBILITY

Just knowing that you are taking the smart, effective path to improve you driving skills helps give you the confidence that you will be able to handle an emergency situation when you encounter it.  This course gives you the opportunity to test the limits of your vehicle in a safe and controlled environment.  It also allows you to experiment with the controls of your vehicle, vastly reducing the impulse to do so on public highways.

PREDICTABILITY

The use of a closed training course removes critical unknowns.  Everyone is going the same direction; for starters, no one will be nosing out into your path from a blind driveway or road.  And you are not going to find oil or diesel fuel spilled all over the pavement.  You know what’s coming, and what isn’t.  This allows you to concentrate on improving your driving skills.  On the street these variables require you to maintain a wide safety margin. 

THE COURSE CURRICULUM

  • GROUNDSCHOOL
    • The ground school portion is about 40 minutes long. It covers correct hand positions on the wheel, seating position and we cover basic vehicle dynamics.
  • SLALOM COURSE
    • This course is a serpentine set-up in a straight line with cones 60 feet apart.  It is designed to teach weight transfer, steering wheel feel and control, throttle control, trailing throttle oversteer, and judging distance.
  • BRAKING COURSE
    • This portion of the course teaches the student to brake the car safely without getting the car in a full wheel lock-up if the car is not equipped with ABS brakes.  If the student has a car with ABS brakes it teaches the student how the ABS brakes function.  This allows the student to brake more effectively and safely reducing reaction time and braking distance required to stop avoiding a possible crash.
  • ACCIDENT AVOIDANCE COURSE
    • This course teaches emergency evasive maneuvers and decision-making when confronted with emergencies.  The student will take the concepts of the slalom course and braking course and put them together to control the car and to “panic stop” the car in the shortest possible distance.
