Skills School passenger cars with an automatic transmission are modified with temporary hand controls. The course is marked out with pylons on a large paved area, typically 200’ X 300’ paved area. The goal is to learn car control and seamlessly transition the virtual world skills to real world applications.  Participants learn to bring virtual world skill sets to life; lane changing, accident avoidance, anti-lock braking systems etc.  Muscle Memory becomes natural response, the students necessary driver inputs become automatic during the real vehicle driving exercises and accident avoidance skills in a real vehicle, proven to reduce accidents and save lives.


SKILLS SCHOOL:, is a one-day driving course that teaches accident avoidance knowledge and experience to succeed in emergency situations. SKILLS that teach car control go far beyond traditional Drivers Ed programs.

  • students will be  trained by an instructor using the driving simulator.
  • training will focus on vehicle control and various weight transfer techniques as well as practice in accident avoidance maneuvers. 
  • students are people both physically challenged and ambulatory, male and female, military and civilian, young and old, professional and civilian drivers. 



Oval track / Road Course adaptive racecar experience is what everyone craves, but the prior exercises have developed safer driving skills as a prerequisite to High Performance Driving Experience. AM&W provides a unique perspective to addressing psychological issues using rehabilitation engineering and assistive technology for adaptive sports.
