Practical Driver Improvement for Civilians

Filed under MINI, Photos

Here are some pics from a driving class I took back in December of 2003.  The class is called “Practical Driver Improvement for Civilians.” It was such a blast! It is taught by police officers using the same course used to train police. The course is just outside of Kilgore, Texas. About 90% of the class is spent in your car.  The 2 day course only cost $75, which is a steal! You also can get a discount from your insurance for taking the class.

The class has 6 lessons:

  • Evasive Lane Change accident avoidance
  • Perception / Reaction Emergency Lane Changes for accident avoidance
  • Evasive Maneuvering for Accident Avoidance (”serpentine” course)
  • Precision Maneuvering Courses
  • Precision Backing Courses
  • Highway Response Courses

It is a lot of fun to learn what your car can and, more importantly, cannot do. You are not learning anything unless your car looses control!
