How to Improve Your Driving Skills

Anyone willing to improve their driving skills deserves respect. The most skilled drivers, including F1 and WRC, never claim they’re the best, and keep training no matter how many trophies they’ve won.

1: If you have access to vehicles of different makes and models, switch them often.
This way you’ll be working on driving as a whole, not on driving a specific car.

2 :Find a training lot. A disused airfield is the best idea, because it has long straight stretches (the runway), corners (turn way to runway entrance) and wide open spaces (the area in front of the hangars). If you are not so lucky as to have a disused airfield nearby, you may look for these three things separately. You may use abandoned country roads and disused parking lots that measure at least 50 by 50 feet.

3 : When you practice, focus not on the driving itself, but on feeling the behaviour of the vehicle. This includes lateral stability, acceleration, braking distance, etc. When you learn how to feel the vehicle, you’ll be able to drive anything at its verge.

4: Think of any hypothetical situation you may encounter, e.g flat tire, high-speed under-/over steer, pursuit driving, etc. Think what you must do in that particular case, then get in the car and do it. Make a note of your weak points and work to improve them.
