The Total Vehicle Control program provides drivers with the skills needed to safely handle emergency situations and anticipate hazards commonly encountered during on-the-job driving activities.

TVC sessions combine classroom instruction with real world driving exercises.

TVC provides instruction in situational awareness, driving dynamics, skid control, emergency braking, and accident avoidance techniques. Partnered with a certified instructor, students are introduced to the physics and dynamics of vehicle control and will maneuver through a variety of situations in a controlled environment.


The program is particularly targeted to assist firms that operate multiple-vehicle fleets and traveling sales personnel in reducing the risk of accidents and liability exposure.

Core elements of the program:

Safety First

•The “One Second Advantage” that provides confidence behind the wheel

•Maintaining mental focus and situational awareness

Vehicle Dynamics

•How physics affects vehicular control dynamics and vehicle reaction

•Emergency stopping and skidding

•Accident avoidance of off-road recovery

Behind the Wheel

• On-course instruction with qualified instructors

• Giving participants a “real feel” for the road in a variety of circumstances

On-track instructional elements of the program are conducted in a safe, controlled environment on Pitt Race’s track and skid pad. “Ride along” instructors provide personalized guidance and feedback.

Because the program puts participants behind the wheel, it provides an engaging and fun learning experience. At the end of the day, participants drive away with improved confidence and the knowledge that they’re better prepared and safer behind the wheel.

Training and Personnel Development

While the program is designed to enhance safety and reduce the likelihood of work-related vehicle accidents, many companies have found that customized TVC sessions are excellent for corporate events, customer/client outings, and workforce development exercises.
