  • Let off the gas pedal, do not apply your brake and gently steer into the skid. When you start to straighten out, you may start to swing the other way…just gently steer the other way. Eventually you’ll slow to a point where your car will be straight. Then just gently apply the gas pedal and continue.

  • The test answer is steer in the direction of the skid, but in real life it is rarely enough because you are probably skidding on a slippery surface.

    Neutralize the accelerator – just enough throttle to keep rolling – and steer in the direction of the skid. Don’t even think of touching the brake. If you take your foot off the throttle altogether the drag will make the skid worse. Do not downshift – it is the same as braking. As the front of the car starts to move in the direction the car is going (that is what you want, after all) straighten the steering wheel sooner than you think you should. The car has polar momentum; that is, it will keep rotating in that direction without the wheels being pointed that way. Nearly everybody recovers from the first swing and loses it on the swing back.
