The training was subsidised by our local council and ACC. The cost to us was a mere $20 per person, outstanding value.
The course was run by Andrew and Lynne Templeton who run a company called Roadsafe .
We had a morning classroom session that included some great videos demonstrating the importance of looking where you want to go when things get challenging.
We were told to come to the day with an open mind that I did but it was certainly full by the end of the day.
After lunch we headed just up the road to Southwards Car Museum who very kindly let us use part of their car park, they even arranged to have the area swept just for us.
Here we were given the opportunity to emergency brake and find the limits of our brakes in a controlled environment. Managed to lock up my front wheel on the FJ but my human ABS came into action swiftly enough !!
We also did various exercises using body weight to turn very tightly at low speeds etc etc.
A great day and I personally learnt heaps.
