Defensive Driving encompasses Vehicle Dynamics, Adaptive Driving & Advanced Car Control

At FastLane Raceschool, safety is our number one priority, and our Defensive Driving course is the perfect introduction to safe, high-speed track driving.

Each Defensive Driving course typically runs from 9 am – 4 pm with an hour break for lunch. Completing this course is mandatory for drivers who are new to FastLane or do not possess proven track driving experience.

This course consists of a classroom discussion, safety instruction, and in seat coaching in your own vehicle by our experienced instructors. During the day, you will learn safe driving techniques as well as advanced skills such as skid control, wet weather car control, ABS braking, braking distance demonstrations, and emergency stop maneuvers. Our exercises also help you be more prepared for situations like crash avoidance, preventing roll-overs, distracted driving, practicing vision and depth perception, and more.

Our instructors will demonstrate and coach you during the course, as well as ride with you to provide more assistance. Private and 1-on1 coaching is also an available option during scheduled school days.
