Invitation to Trillium BMW Club Street Survival School 2012

By Isi Papadopoulos President, Trillium Chapter BMW Club

The Trillium BMW Club 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 school is open to ALL. No need to be a Trillium BMW Club member or to own a BMW.

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.

The Street Survival School originated in the US by the BMWCCA Foundation/Tire Rack and has become very popular. Most BMW chapters in the United States currently run these schools.

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).

This one-day course costs only $75, and is intended merely to cover costs.

    We did. It’s called our IDS (Introductory Driving School) held twice in April. It is open to all Club members and their families. You can bring any (roadworthy) vehicle and we encourage spouses and children (licensed) to participate. Although this School is a prerequisite for our track based DE programme, it is also extremely valuable for those who just wish to sharpen their driving skills for everyday driving.
