Trillium BMW Club is pleased to announce the Street Survival Schools, presented in conjunction with BMWCCA Foundation and Tire Rack. These are safe driving programs, designed to go beyond driver education and give teens the hands-on experience and tools to become safer, smarter drivers. The program is open to the public and does not require the Club membership.

A shocking statistic:
Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death among 15-24 year olds; more than drugs, guns and violent crimes combined. They account for over 70% of accidental deaths each year in that age group. (Reported by Statistics Canada)

This Street Survival School is NOT a performance driving school or an Auto Slalom event. The sole objective of this program is to teach young adults safer driving techniques and help them develop a mature mindset that may assist them in the future. Speeds are intentionally kept very low (< 60 km/h) and students are always accompanied by an instructor. Students are to bring the vehicle that they drive most often so they can become familiar with its characteristics.

The program provides:

• Trained and qualified in-car driving instructors
• In-classroom learning
• Hands-on educational driving experiences in real world situations teaching teens car safety and control in their own vehicles.
• Challenging driving situations including skid control and emergency lane changes on private, closed courses. This allows students to experience abnormal vehicle behavior in a safe and supervised environment.

Our first school is scheduled for Sunday, June 10, 2012 and will be held at the GO Transit parking lot in Unionville, ON (Hwy 407 and Kennedy Rd). It will be a full day event.

Total cost is only $75.00 per participant (lunch and refreshments included).
