1) PDD (Professional Driver Development) Course: We offer two different Driver Development Courses that provide a blended mixture of measurable evaluations along with detailed defensive driving lessons in simulated situations and winter skid control teaching. 7 modules nicely rolled into a 4.5-hour program shared between 2 drivers at the same time. Drivers have fun competing with each other yet learning skills that simply cannot be taught in a classroom setting or online PDIC Course. As an employer you will receive detailed evaluation reports and optional full video recording of each training session. This information will clearly identify a drivers strengths and weaknesses in multiple driving scenarios - allowing you to pick other specific training modules to ensure your driver's proficiency skills remain at your required standards. We also offer you an extended PLUS version - adding even more evaluations and training to raise the bar of professional development even further. This is a Certified 2 year course. Drivers are given a wallet card and wall certificate showing completion and expiry date. These certificates are also provided to the company and stored on our Cloud Server for your own pass-word protected access.   DOWNLOAD FLYER - CLICK HERE

 2) Eco-driving: Our courses can save trucking companies up 40% in fuel costs alone. Driving habits CAN be changed and re-learned - especially when you can utilize a simulator that brings the "fun" back into learning. We strongly encourage our clients to explore this newest feature and see why this program is one of our fastest-growing modules since simulators were introduced into the market. 

a) Basic Fuel Efficency Express:

Fuel Efficency1

This module is a 1-hour group lesson that identifies and shows the students the "how" in managing accelerations - so efficient driving is actually proven and then accomplished. This is a great way to start the learning process. Maximum of 6 students at one time.

ONLY  $55.00 + GST per student (minimum of 2 students required).   ** Maximum charge of $300.00 if class is filled by same company.** 

  

b) Comprehensive Fuel Efficency Course:

Fuel Efficency2

This is a 3 to 8-hour course (depending on the amount of students attending) with a maximum of 4 students. This is a very comprehensive designed module to clearly demonstrate all aspects of fuel efficiency and maintenance cost reduction. We developed a series of learning scenarios to help drivers understand the physical forces that cause a vehicle to consume fuel:

- rolling and aerodynamic resistance,

- inertia,

- braking and gravity.

As the learner drives, each physical force acting on his vehicle is represented graphically on the front display. The driver receives immediate feedback on the relationship between these physical forces and his own actions on the gas and brake pedals. This direct, experiential learning bridges the gap between classroom or on-line theory and provides each driver with simulated on-road practice! This helps the drivers understand the "why’s and how’s" of fuel-efficient and the benefits of changing their Eco-driving habits. This course adds challenge to the classroom - giving the students a chance to compete against each other and compare scores at the end of the course.

1 Student:    $340.00 + GST  (3 hours)

2 Students:  $495.00 + GST  (4.5 hours)

3 Students:  $629.00 + GST  (6 hours)

4 Students:  $789.00 + GST  (8 hours)

3) Defensive Driving Course:

 

a) Basic Entry-level Defensive Driving Course:

directions around semi tractor trailer2

This Module is a basic, interactive group defensive driving course. The Simulator will guide the driver through lessons to:

- improve their reaction time to unexpected driving incidents.

- improve their required total stopping distance needed based on the type of truck driven, load weights and road/weather conditions.

- improve their ability to identify "risk zones" and what to do when they are breached.

- improve their use of "safety cushion zones" when on the highways.

- improve their safety and performance when merging onto freeways.

- improve their ability to anticipate collisions at intersections.

This is a 2-hour interactive group learning experience. Each student is shown the above principles in a power-point presentation on the simulator screen, then they take turns practicing these safe maneuvers in a variety of simulated driving situations. Learning retention along with real habit changes are up to 80% more effective than just classroom teaching alone. We even have friendly competitions within the attending group to add even more fun to the learning curve.

1 Student:    $299.00 + GST  (3 hours)

2 Students:  $399.00 + GST  (4 hours)

3 Students:  $499.00 + GST  (5 hours)

b) Extensive Detailed Defensive Driving Course:

driving safety

This Module is a very comprehensive, detailed interactive group defensive driving course. The Simulator will guide the driver through lessons to:

- Improve their reaction time to unexpected driving incidents.

- Improve their required total stopping distance needed based on the type of truck driven, weight of load and road/weather conditions.

- Improve their ability to identify and manage "risk zones" and what to do when they are breached.

- Improve their use of "safety cushion zones" when on the highway.

- Improve their safety and performance when merging onto freeways.

- improve their ability to anticipate collisions at intersections.

- improve their ability to prevent rollovers.

- understand what vehicle dynamics mean in simulated experiences.

- improve reaction time in obstacle avoidance.

- understand and practice the differences in load size and the forces of center of gravity.

- improve their driving habits when wind effect is present.

- understand and practice better driving skills for the control of skid prevention.

- show and experience the real effects of the dangers of texting and driving.

- show and experience the real effects of the dangers of fatigued driving.

This is a 5 to 8-hour interactive Group Learning experience. Each student is shown the above principles in power-point presentations on the simulator screen. Each module is followed with immediate practice on the simulator.  We keep the class sizes small to ensure each student is given the necessary tools and time in the simulator to practice the lessons provided. Learning retention along with real habit changes are up to 80% more effective than just classroom teaching. We even have friendly competitions within the attending group to add even more fun to the learning curve. We keep our maximum class size to 3 students to ensure everyone has the highest possible time each in the simulator!

Prices range from $499.00 to $799.00 (+ GST)  based on the number of modules taught - and the number of students booked. Please download the Pricing Flyer to decide/determine the package you wish us to teach.  Defensive Driving Pricing
