Audi Club Glacier Lakes Car Control Clinic
7:45 am - 4:30 pm
Teen Car Control Clinic Sponsored by
A Commercial driver’s education course teaches the principles of road awareness and safety for prospective first-time drivers. Courses generally cover what we call the basics: Road signs and what they mean, principles of being a safe and responsible driver, how to operate a motor vehicle, traffic laws, and theoretically how to handle those emergency situations.
But did drivers who attended such a course get the experience to know how quickly you can safely stop your vehicle? Or how wet roads or going off-road such as swerving onto the shoulder of the highway affect driving dynamics?
Our clinics take things a bit further.
For over two decades, Audi Club Glacier Lakes has taught hundreds of individuals to become better, safer, more confident drivers. Our Driving Clinic is the perfect place for teen or adult drivers to have fun while improving their driving skills and building confidence.
Our one-day program, sponsored by Amica Insurance
, combines classroom sessions with behind-the-wheel exercises. Drivers learn how to handle their car in various driving conditions and situations, while receiving coaching and encouragement from their trained instructor sitting in the passenger seat. From slalom and skid pad exercises to braking and accident avoidance, we’ll teach you or your teen in one day skills that were not taught in the standard Driver’s Education class.
Our Car Control Clinic is the perfect place for drivers to have fun, improve their driving skills, and build confidence practicing behind the wheel. You’ll spend time in the classroom learning about things like how vehicles react under acceleration and braking, what a ‘contact patch’ is, and why it’s important. Then you will head out to the closed driving course with a trained instructor in your passenger seat to apply the things you discussed in the classroom.
Our Car Control Clinic Goals are to:
- Improve overall awareness of driving position and its effect on the ability to control a vehicle
- Educate on the physics that affects car handling and how to use physics to advantage
- Improve ability to control a vehicle in all weather conditions
- Improve ability to control a vehicle in both normal and emergency driving situations
Drivers find the exercises both fun and tough—they’re designed to teach drivers how both they and their car react in various conditions.
Attendees do not need to be ACNA Members. However, Members and teen drivers in a Member’s household receive a discounted price on the clinic.
*Note: Although the link and video refer to “Teen Clinics”, both Teen and Adult Clinics follow the same program and teach the same concepts and skills.
