BSR Accident Avoidance Courses (“AA”) teach already-licensed drivers, with six months driving experience, how to handle highway emergencies. So trained, BSR’s AA graduates will have the opportunity to respond instantaneously and more positively to any driving emergency. The difference can save lives.
Training is eight hours; 6½-hours hands-on, and 1½-hours in classroom. Classroom focuses on what’s coming next. No extended road-scene videos or simulators. You can’t learn to ride a bicycle from a video.
Typical Daily Schedule
Advanced Vehicle Control I & II
Students will learn how to understanding the driver/vehicle relationship. The areas that will be emphasized are vehicle language, weight and traction transfer, the importance of proper eye location, body position, hand management, straight braking, braking-in-turns, swerving to avoid objects, ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System) and off-road recoveries. They will also be taught the difference between over steer and under steer and how they are controlled by skid recovery.
Advanced Vehicle Control III
Students will apply advanced vehicle control skills, vehicle dynamics, weight and traction control as well as dealing with adrenaline and stress management. Positively reading the road for possible hazards as well as adjusting to traction levels at “highway” speeds.
Multiple Culminating Exercises
Students will be divided into groups where they will conduct multiple exercises. These will consist of a backing exercise to help with proximity and blind spot recognition. An additional skid pad session with electronically controlled brake assisted systems will ensure that they can properly recognize and properly control a vehicle with traction and stability control capabilities. They will also be put through, as an individual, a final advanced vehicle control exercise that will require them to apply all of the skils that they have learned throughout the day.
