Skid control lessons don't really prepare you for the real thing. The skid control practice areas have no trees or other obstacles around not like the real world.
The other thing you have to remember is that winter tyres are compulsory in most if not all Scandavian countries.
True Noel, but it teaches you how to stop a skid by pumping the brakes (pre ABS now) and how to steer out of a skid etc. Alot of people dont even know that.
