Got a Question?
At Skid Control we get a lot of questions, so to make things a bit easier we have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions below to save you time.
What is your refund/credit/date change policy?
Do you cancel events due to adverse weather conditions?
How old do I need to be to participate?
What if I am a minor/under 18?
All persons under the age of 18 are considered minors, and to participate in an event a minor is required to be signed in by a Legal Guardian who is required to be present at sign on for the event
The legal guardian may also be asked to provide proof of legal guardianship on the day, with any of the following:
– Parents Medicare card listing the minor and the legal guardian
– A court order or letter of guardianship signed by a judge when they were appointed as guardian by a court
If you are an independent minor you will have to provide government or court documents confirming your independent status.
We unfortunately cannot accept friends signing for underage participants unless they hold legal documents confirming their Legal Guardianship of the minor.
We will require proof of age if we suspect you are under the age of 18, it is a requirement that you have a suitable photo ID confirming your full name and date of birth.
Are we allowed passengers?
You are allowed passengers at every event apart from our Track and Track Training Days.
Passengers need to be secured in the vehicle and have filled out the same waiver form as the driver. Passengers are to be 7 years or older, be out of a booster seat, secured properly and have to have their waiver signed by a legal guardian of over 18 years old. Please ensure they are secured in the car properly.
Do you offer instruction?
What are the rules for using your cars?
We care about our cars and regularly use them in various motorsports and activities. For this reason we are required to sit in the passenger seat for your first session or more (at the discretion of the instructor) to help you enjoy the day and to ensure you are looking after the car. We aren’t nannies though, the cars are built to be driving at the event and you will get the most out of them.
We expect you to drive the vehicle as if it were your own, follow all instructions provided and risk will be minimised. You are not responsible for damage to vehicles caused by mechanical failures, other vehicles, outside influences or small incidents. You may be liable for repair costs in the event of a major crash caused by over driving or not following instructions provided to you on the day.
How safe is it?
Most of our events are setup to be as safe as possible within the driver training industry. We are however pushing cars to limits they won’t experience on the road and as such there is always going to be a risk of damage to a car or the participants in the car.
We do not offer any form of insurance for participants own vehicles and we ask that all attendees ensure their car is safe and that they are secure in their vehicle in case something does happen. Our hire vehicles are all fully insured for driver training.
We are proud to say that, to date, we have not had a major incident at any of our events.
