Acquisition of New Land
Within the last 6 months On Course was able to purchase another 4.5 acres of land adjoining their facility. This now brings our training facility up to a size of 27 acres. All of which is fenced for security and privacy.
Although we already carry out skid control training in our level 2 defensive driving and armoured vehicle courses, we plan to dedicate the majority of this new land for skid control training.
More photos of building up the Skid Control circuit can be found at +OnCourse.
Left Hand Drive Vehicles
Over the years one of the requests that have been made by students in their programme evaluations was that we should have LHD 4wd drive vehicles for them to use.
Over the last two years we have purchased 2 LHD drive 4wds. One Range Rover and one Land Rover Defender. We are also looking at adding an automatic to our fleet.
Our training fleet now stands at 13 training vehicles.
On Board Cameras
Another string to our training that we have planned on developing over the years is to be able to record students doing aspects of our physical training and have the ability to play back whilst waiting for the next repetition.
We believe that this will helps students recognize their driving errors more effectively and therefore make it easier for them to self correct.
We have been able to purchase all of the relevant equipment and are at present making modifications to our training vehicles to easily transfer the equipment from one vehicle to another.
