Potentially lifesaving and lots of fun. Many drivers first experience the unnerving sensation of a skid out driving on the road in their own car; this might result in an accident or the driver losing control.
Driving on a skid-pan is a safe and pleasurable way to understand and feel how a car can react when beyond its limits in wet road conditions, skidding on black ice or even aquaplaning. Learn simple and effective techniques to take back the control and equip yourself with skills to confidently drive in all types of road conditions.

Everything at Knockhill is built with driving in mind and as an internationally accredited circuit safety is always our number one priority. We believe everyone should have some knowledge of how to control your vehicle in changing conditions. Whether you have just passed your test or been driving for many years you never know when you may be in a situation when your car will be involved in a skidding situation. Let us help you to confidently drive in wet and slippy road conditions including ice and aquaplaning.
We use various models of cars including front wheel and rear wheel drive cars to simulate true to everyday life road driving scenarios. All help to encourage and develop driving skills. Learn about ABS, brake avoidance and different skidding consequences in our fully adapted vehicles.
Knockhill Racing Circuit is Scotland’s only approved MSA and FIA Internationally graded Circuit and is famous for hosting major televised motorsport events such as the British Touring Car and the British Superbike Championships.
The skid pan was built in 1997 and since opening has helped our customers regain to their confidence after an accident or simply given them valuable knowledge on how to handle their car if something goes wrong. The skid pan is a safe and enclosed area coated with a special smooth tarmac surface; adding a recirculating water supply creates the 'Slippery' surface allowing a skid to be induced with ease. In 2007 we introduced the Brake and Avoidance Lane allowing further development of a vital part of skid correction training.
"I just wanted to say a big thank you for my skid pan experience on Monday 6th June. It was a birthday pressie from hubby, and I cannot think of a better way to spend a morning! As well as learning a great deal, I had an absolute blast! Bill the tutor was great, very relaxed, a wickedly dry sense of humour and a demon (albeit a safe one!) behind the wheel, who managed to set me at ease as I was a little bit nervous lol! Cheers Bill! Thanks again."J. Mulholland Jun, 2017
