In Control offers the nation’s first state certified crash prevention training to drivers of all ages. This closed course, hands-on education was adapted from existing law enforcement training in the United States as well as European instruction that led to a societal shift in attitudes toward driving in many countries.

Specifically, the training addresses the driving issues that most affect the safety of drivers while on the road. The inclusion of skills was developed after examining insurance and police data to find the most dangerous activities, and assessing the biggest needs.

All of the training is performed in their vehicles, and each hands-on drill is taught in the car one-on-one with one of In Control’s highly qualified instructors.

The hands-on training includes:

  • Proper hands and seating
  • Emergency braking skills (ABS)
  • Advanced steering skills, including over and under steering and speed control
  • Backing up skills and awareness
  • Close quarters maneuverability
  • Following distance/tailgating
  • Anti-cell /text messaging / distraction experience
  • Emergency avoidance maneuvers
  • This is supplemented with classroom discussion and training that additionally addresses:
  • Situational awareness and driving distractions (including cell / texting)
  • Understanding road-rage
  • Airbag awareness
  • Vehicle assessment

Other topics pertinent to the specific individuals involved (contact In Control with specific curriculum enhancement requests)
