We got the good news that our iced facility in Minden is ready for us to use. We can start our ILR Winter Driving schools sponsored by Goodyear Tires early this season. If we have enough demand, we’ll start up before our scheduled Jan. 4th date. If you would like to take part in a Winter Driving School between now and the New Year, please contact us.
ILR has grown to the point where we will be adding 3 NEW courses to our curriculum. Our Tactical Driving courses are designed for law enforcement, police forces and security firms. Not only will we be helping these drivers understand the ultimate in control skills but we will be showing them pursuit and evasion driving skills.
Our ECO Driving course will help all motorists get the most out of their petro-dollars. ILR will help you improve your fuel economy from 10 to 50% meaning this course will pay for itself in no time. You are not helpless in the fight against the oil companies.
Our new Performance Driving Level 2 takes our Track Schools to the next level. In this course you will learn how to set up your car for competition driving using data acquisition technology and the latest in suspension, brake and tire technology. We’ll help you beat the competition by taking your driving skills and car set up skills up another notch.
Details on these courses will be posted on our website soon.
Goodyear Canada inc. is offering all ILR graduates in either our advanced driving or performance driving schools a mail-in rebate on their next tire purchase as a way of saying thank-you. Goodyear designs and builds tires renowned for their safety and performance, and helping ILR graduates to get the best tires helps to top off the complete driving experience. When you complete any ILR advanced or performance driving course, we’ll give you your special mail-in rebate coupons to use toward the purchase of Goodyear tires. It doesn’t get any better than that!

To all the instructors at your Winter Driving School program in Minden this past Saturday:
A huge thank you from Judy and Emerald. We enjoyed the day and we feel we learned from you. The drive home was in terrible conditions but we felt more confident after taking your course. As we drove past a single vehicle crash, we felt grateful that we now had a bit more driving savvy than we did before.
The instructors are all knowledgable and very gentle. They were quick to praise when they saw us doing something better and managed to correct and instruct us in a calm and reassuring way.
Again, our thanks. I will recommend this class to anyone willing to listen!
Judy and Emerald.
I want to thank you for the excellent training Sarah received yesterday by you and your wonderful staff. She had nothing but good things to say and feels much more confident about driving. I will sleep better at night knowing she has this training! She’s giving me tips as well, to correct MY bad habits! She wants to take your “Car Control School” in the spring and I am all for it. We will be booking her in for sure.
Thank you again,

At our last Car Control School on Nov. 3rd, ILR hosted Canadian Hockey Moms (www.canadianhockeymoms.ca) founder Theresa D. and her guest so they can experience what advanced driver training can do to make all hockey moms safer this winter season. Here is what Theresa had to say about her experience with us: ” That. Was. So. Fun!!!!
I wanted to thank you SO MUCH for such a great day at the Advanced Driving Course today. Though I was excited, I had no idea what to expect having never done anything like this before. However, I can tell you it was VERY entertaining, but more important, educational! I knew I had some bad driving habits, but more importantly, I learned that I was doing many things incorrectly because I had never learned the proper way. Your course provided the theory to explain why things are important, and the practice to help get us comfortable and actually (and sometimes physically) correct what we were doing wrong. AND, the section on understanding your vehicle, particularly the sections on antilock brakes and tires, really helped me to understand the importance of both. And I really DO understand the importance of the proper tires, and specifically, winter tires, as well as why and when. Thank you for answering all of my questions on those details.
I can honestly say that after taking your course I would recommend it to anyone who drives, and I would 100% recommend it to new drivers, including my own kids, when it is time. You do a really great job, and your instructors are knowledgeable, and friendly, yet patient.
We look forward to having hockey moms join us at our Winter Driving Schools.
