As a business owner, you wouldn’t allow employees to use complex and dangerous machines with only minimal training, so why send your employees out onto the roads with only minimal driver training? Your business can reduce economic losses caused by employee injury (lost productivity and increased insurance costs) and equipment damage due to vehicle collisions and crashes.
ILR Car Control School offers Corporate Programs for small or large groups. We can accommodate up to 25 participants per session including classroom and driving exercises. Your employees will learn techniques to remain safe on the roads throughout the course of their occupational travels. Our Fleet Driver Training course (either our Car Control or Winter Driving courses) will help ensure your staff is as safe as possible on our roads and highways.
According to a recent survey conducted by Leger Research Group “The average Canadian driver aged 18-44 is 47% more likely to be involved in a motor vehicle collision than an ILR-CCS trained driver aged 18-44“. This is a significant reduction in collisions resulting in saved lives and greatly reduced costs.
In a recent Health and Safety survey, Ontario Government employees listed daily driving as the greatest threat to their safety that they faced each day. The various Government Ministries addressed this concern by requesting that ILR Car Control School design a corporate safe driving program for them. They then awarded the contract to us with the result that the employees of the Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Natural Resources from Ottawa to Sarnia to Sudbury are all benefiting from the advanced driver training they received with ILR Car Control Courses.
ILR Car Control School offers two versions of our corporate driver training. We have our full one-day Car Control or Winter Driving schools that include a mix of classroom sessions alternating with dynamic driving exercises. We also have a half day classroom only session that includes our comprehensive PowerPoint and video presentations to help your staff understand how to prepare their vehicle and themselves for our challenging roads.
Your staff will enjoy a comfortable interactive classroom environment with state-of-the-art Power Point presentations, including videos, as they learn about safe driving techniques and vehicle dynamics. We will discuss seating position, use of controls, vision training, information processing, our unique Pro-Active© Driving system, driver psychology and much more. We will also dispel the many myths that exist regarding vehicle safety systems to help them understand better how to use these safety systems properly in their vehicles.
We will supply instructors, handbooks, pens and certificates. Your company needs only to supply the employees and the vehicles they will be driving. We are firm believers in training your employees in the vehicles they drive daily. There is no better way for them to experience how their company vehicle will react in an emergency situation. *If needed, we can rent vehicles for your group’s use at a surcharge of $250 per vehicle plus hst.
Your employees will experience driving exercises such as collision avoidance, skid pad, emergency braking, emergency lane change and more, with a highly experienced instructor sitting beside them, providing instant feedback and direction. These exercises all take place in the safety of a large limited access paved parking lot.
We can also arrange for a state-of-the-art facility in Brampton to host our training day with your company, including classroom, safe driving exercise area and catering.

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

PS Out of the whole week of training everyone loved your session the most. I didn’t get a chance to tell you earlier. Thanks very much!
Freundliche Grüße / Best regards Melissa Doyle
I am glad everything worked out for this training. I have talked with many of the trainees and every response so far has been very positive. I had a look at the photos, and I will be sure that some of the other managers have a look at them as well. All in all it was worth the effort and I will make this known to our training group and the other managers. It would be very beneficial if you could send me the evaluation sheets (scanned images would be best if possible). I will forward them to our training group so that if others at OPG want to pursue this training they will have some good back up information to do so.
I appreciate the effort you and your group put towards organizing this training, it was very professionally done.
Have a great weekend.
