Winter Survival in your vehicle…for 24hrs!

February 20th, 2014 : Filed under News, Videos, Winter School No Comments

Time to get real about winter driving and how to survive being stranded in your car. This year, North America has been hammered by nasty winter weather and tens of thousands of drivers have been caught off guard and unprepared.In our Winter Driving School we discuss the importance of packing some essential survival gear in your car should you get stranded. Our very own Shaun de Jager (one of our Chief Instructors) just took things to a whole new level.

Shaun goes toe-to-toe with Old Man Winter and along with another one of our instructors, Lesley Wimbush (also an Automotive Journalist for Wheels.ca) and they challenge themselves to survive in a vehicle for 24hrs…in sub-freezing temperatures.

Shaun’s article is packed full of survival tips and advice about essential survival gear and he even recorded it. The video is long but covers a lot of tips and tricks to survive in your car. Things get very real and a tad scary and it’s pretty eye opening watching Shaun and Lesley progress from being ok, to suffering hypothermia and then recovering in the morning. We should all pay attention to this. Lesley’s article should appear on Wheels.ca shortly.

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.

Another Great Testimonial!

February 25th, 2013 : Filed under Uncategorized No Comments

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.
