At the start of the outing, American Controlled Driving Academy's experienced drifting instructors brief students on the sport of drifting and give a safety lesson. Classes begin with two five-minute car-control sessions with the student behind the wheel, during which instructors teach pupils to slide their tires through drift circles and figure eights. Following a short break, instructors guide future drift kings as they screech through laps on the drift course. Then professional drivers steer their four-wheeled steeds on one high-speed lap of the drift track while participants ride in the passenger's seat. Throughout the two-hour course, students get approximately 30 minutes of seat time. Each session includes the use of a drift-capable car, as well as a photo of the experience.
