A Skill is a driving stunt that awards players Skill Points upon successful completion. Skills can be initiated in any game mode, but will vanish if the player becomes involved in a heavy collision, chooses to rewind or has their car position reset. They can be triggered individually, in combination with other Skills or through interaction with objects.
Extraordinary individually triggered Skills such as a particularly high Air Skill or long Drift Skill award more points that are classed in Great, Awesome and Ultimate levels, with the latter awarding the best Skills with the highest amount of points. Skill chains are awarded with a score multiplier that can be increased up to five as maximum without any perks.
Players can use Forza Edition cars with Skill boosts for bonus points, but may also raise point rewards for certain Skills or raise the multiplier limit by purchasing their respective Car Mastery perks that are permanently applied to a car.

- Peforming a Near Miss while still in midair doesn't seem to work.
- It doesn't have to be in the same skill chain.
- Winter only, obviously.
- Lego Valley DLC only.
- Usually achieved by passing between two non-racing vehicles driving close to each other, but on high enough speeds you can achieve Threading the Needle even if the two vehicles are far apart, as long as the two Near Miss skills are from different sides, and earned in a very quick succession.
- The passes should be earned in succession, not simultaneously (such as passing a crash pile).
