MBCA SAFE DRIVING SCHOOL
EARLY BIRD registration extended until April 7th!
Our training is designed to teach adapt driving at fairly low speeds to simulate a variety of highway driving situations. It gives the participant the opportunity to add alternative maneuvers to their driving knowledge when an emergency situation occurs. It is knowing what your car can do and knowing what you can do with your car. Accidents happen in a split second. Adept driving may help the driver gain an extra second in reaction time in that emergency situation and that second may just save their life. In an emergency, every second counts.
Two courses are being offered. The Defensive Driving Course for the more seasoned driver that want to update his/her driving skills and the Safe Drivers - Safe Families course where we will be teaching basic driving skills and car knowledge to our young student drivers.
In the morning, the class begins with a 45 minute classroom instruction, where participants will learn proper seat and mirror adjustment, steering techniques, braking, foot position, tire patch theory and car dynamics. Then participants will drive through the various stations we have set up in a parking lot, with an instructor at their side at all times. We will have them practice avoiding an obstacle in the road, proper hard braking technique and steering through slalom to feel the cars dynamics. They will also experience the feel and sounds of their ABS brakes. We will take them through several times until they feel confident or when we feel they have successfully completed the course.
Lunch Break - A small lunch and soft drinks are included in the registration fee.
In the afternoon, we will re-design the course, making an Auto-x Lite. We basically just connect the cones, so that there is a continuous flow through the course. Participants will be able to drive through this course (with instructor) and review the skills they learned in the morning session as well as have a lot of fun. The object is to practice some of the techniques learned and to have fun driving through the course as quickly as possible without knocking down any of the cones. Sometimes we take people through a few times until they feel comfortable and then ask them if they want to be timed. There will be certificates and awards but not necessarily only for the fastest!
Note: We want people to bring the CAR THEY DRIVE EVERY DAY (it does not have to be a Mercedes). Especially students in the Safe Drivers - Safe Families course, we want them to bring the vehicle they drive daily, not necessarily mom and dad’s car.
