ADVANCED DRIVING PROGRAMS AND COSTS
Sidorov Advanced Driver Training offers programs for individuals, groups, businesses, and government. More knowledgeable drivers, with skill and risk assessment training, have the understanding to make better choices and be safer vehicle operators.
All of us are all aware of the horrible personal cost of injury. With more skillful drivers, savings can go beyond avoiding crash damage. Efficient travel as well as reduced wear and tear are corollary benefits.
While an on-line program may fulfill the letter of the law, real skill development takes place behind the wheel, not on a computer screen.
We provide fleet training in Eco-Driving techniques, along with follow-up and documentation if required.
Many Canadian companies have branches in both remote and urban areas, so training has to be targeted to specific needs. As the photo page demonstrates, we can travel just about anywhere to do on-site advanced driver training.
Curriculum design is done in cooperation with the client. We also do safety and handling clinics for ATV/UTV/Argo operators.
One of the difficulties when people are sent to driver training, as opposed to choosing to attend, is the "I already know how to do this" syndrome. If this approach prevails, the event will be seen as enforced boredom, or at best, a paid day off with a nap. This is money wasted. It is important that driver training should be seen as a benefit and an interesting day by participants.
