Skidpan or high speed driving course? For the latter, carlimits is excellent. If you just want to hoon sideways on a wet skidpan, Milbrook perhaps?

Millbrook is a possible--BUT am trying to co-ordinate a Nationwide cover of UK, so each site is within a reasonable drive distance of perhaps 20 + main areas. Other driving subjects available--but skid avoidance training is the prime objective, as it has been the least available subject to try to improve.

Ah, skid avoidance! I thought you just wanted to ruin a set of tyres!


Check out Carlimits, it's high speed driving including skid control and the the tuition is excellent, plus there are no chavs in VTRs to slam into you like on an open track day.
