ILR Winter Driving School featured on the Marilyn Denis Show

March 31st, 2014 : Filed under Uncategorized 1 Comment

Back in January the Marilyn  Denis Show sent their roving reporter and outdoor expert Owen Reeves to visit our ILR Winter Driving school to show a few winter driving tips to their viewers. In the short time we had with Owen, we could only show the “tip of the iceberg” when it comes to safe winter driving. This  link will take you to that episode. (there is a short intro to get through).


Another Very Successful Winter School Season

March 15th, 2014 : Filed under Uncategorized No Comments

ILR and Goodyear enjoyed a very successful Winter Driving School season. This winter gave us excellent conditions to train drivers in safe winter driving techniques. Most of our school dates were SOLD OUT showing the increasing popularity of these Winter Driving Schools. Along with over 100 public motorists taking part in these courses, ILR trained staff from 2 Ontario Ministries (Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Labour) as well as staff from Orillia Power. Each participant was also given a discount coupon from Goodyear tires to use towards their next purchase of vehicle tires – winter or summer.IMG_9182

Good afternoon Ian, thank you for fitting our guys into your program with such little advance notice. All 4 guys had nothing but great things to say about your program, and for people that a very large part of their job is behind the wheel of a vehicle they all felt they came back with a better insight in the safe operation of a vehicle through the winter months. Based on the conversations we have had with the 4 attendees, the evaluation forms they had filled out as per your request and the report that we had requested, this is a program we will follow up with next year. We also hope to contact some neighboring utilities to see if there would be an interest in joining us in participating in this program there by expanding our numbers in an attempt to lower the costs at the same time getting more educated operators on the road. I have attached copies of your evaluation forms as well as the report prepared by our guys to be presented at our next Health & Safety Meeting. Thanks again Ian.

Have a great day, thanks Don

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.

Click here to read Shaun’s post and watch the included video. Bundle up! Just watching this will make you feel cold!

ILR Instructors on Vision TV On Monday Feb. 17th

On Monday Feb. 17th at 9 pm on Vision TV (cable 60) ILR’s very own Shaun de Jager and Ian Law square off with hosts Conrad Black and Denise Donlon on The Zoomer in discussions about aging and driving. Also on the panel were Minister for Seniors Mario Sergio, Ret’ OPP Sgt. Bob Patterson, CARP representative Susan Eng and a representative from Ford Motors. The discussion turns quite lively as Shaun and Ian take on Ford Motors and the other auto manufacturers to task for their so called “safety features”. Enjoy.
