The SKIDCAR SYSTEM was developed by Cedergrens Mek in Sweden, a family-owned company made up of some brilliant engineers and overall great people. SKIDCAR SYSTEM INC has been the sole-source distributor for the USA since 1990, and is currently sole-source for all of North America.
SKIDCAR SYSTEM entered the market as the most effective driving program ever created, and even with modern vehicle and technology advancements, that hasn’t changed. Other programs attempt to simulate experiences to develop a driver’s motor skills. But they are missing that legit, seat-of-the-pants feeling in the pit of your stomach when things go wrong and your car is actually going dangerously fast, sideways. SKIDCAR gives you reality, learning, and safety in a way that no other driver training tool can.
Plus, we’re always on the lookout for incredible new tech to take your training program even further, as efficiently as possible for both your trainees and your budget. Check out our other products here: Automated Traffic Scenario Simulator and our Virtual SKIDCAR Trainer.
Dane started motor racing in 1971. Through 2002 he accumulated an impressive list of race victories, lap records, and driver championships, including International competitions. His driver instructor career began in 1976, teaching advanced motoring and racing classes and broadening his experience with the opening of his own school, Pitarresi ProDrive. This school would grow to include students from professional, private, law enforcement, protective services, and municipal instructor backgrounds, and provide curriculum training elements for each.
From 1990 to the present, Dane’s focus has been on the delivery and instruction of use for the SKIDCAR SYSTEM® and “It’s about Grip, not Slip®” philosophy of driver education. SKIDCAR SYSTEM INC remains the exclusive certifying source for SKIDCAR SYSTEM Instructors in North America.
