Total Control Driving has been designed for drivers of all skill levels, from the inexperienced to the motoring enthusiast or driving professional. Total Control Driving is a hands-on course. Eighty percent of the course is held behind the wheel. Total Control Driving will enhance and develop the drivers' confidence and skill levels when operating the different types of vehicles available to them in their day-to-day activities. Participants use their own vehicles (or company supplied vehicles) in the Braking and Decision-Maker exercises. By operating the vehicles that they use in day-to-day activities, participants learn the specific vehicle limitations and capabilities. In turn, drivers also learn their own specific limitations and capabilities in operating their specific vehicles. Total Control Driving is held at the PTEC Driver Training Centre on a track specifically laid out for developing driving skills. The structure of this track allows the drivers to learn and experience their vehicles' optimum acceleration, braking and cornering abilities in a controlled environment.
