Advanced Driving Courses by The Advanced Driving Centre. Changing Driver behaviour one driver at at time

Much of what we teach in our advanced driving courses has to do with changing driver behaviour. The ADC by YD believes that changing driver behaviour is the key to reducing vehicle crashes. All of our programs are built around this belief. By using our exclusive methods, we can reduce your chance of a collision.

We specialize in exclusive driving maneuvers that become the basis of a life time of safe driving. YD is committed to providing flexible programs that work with you. The ADC facility provides the perfect training ground to deliver the desired program. YD will provide custom tailored solutions to address your needs and concerns.

The four over all concepts of a good driver are observation, attention/proactive and maintaining your skills. Specific techniques will be taught to a driver to allow them to predict and plan for problems around the vehicle 360°. Further methods will be shown to keep space and protect it with a focus on escape routes and blind spot awareness.
The use of defensive tools is used to be proactive and maintaining your skills by staying on top of legal changes and adapting to changing vehicles.

Modules Available in our Advanced Driving Courses

The vast majority of drivers consider themselves to be above average drivers. Despite this belief, 85% of collisions are due to driver error. In this module, clients will learn advanced collision avoidance techniques. Topics covered include the “S”approach, rear crash avoidance, head-on collision avoidance and LCR scanning.
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has recently stated that distracted driving has surpassed impaired driving as a factor in fatal collisions. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined that over 3300 people were killed and an estimated 421,000 injured in distraction-affected crashes in 2012. This module covers the many issues surrounding this topic. In particular, how drivers have underestimated this problem for years and the myths surrounding multi-tasking. The cell phone has brought this topic to the forefront and this module will explore these everyday problems and will suggest appropriate solutions.
This module explains the best methods to control a vehicle in emergency situations. Topics to be covered include gravel shoulder recovery, how to best maneuver around problems and how to most effectively use your eyes to guide your vehicle to safety.
Many of the newest cars and light trucks come factory-equipped with recently developed, technological equipment. Do you know how this equipment really works? Do you train your employees in their proper use? This new technology includes back-up cameras, lane departure warning systems, braking assistance systems and blind spot indicators, to name a few. Do you know what ABS stands for? What about ESC? ABS and ESC have been around since the early 1990’s. Both systems are now standard equipment on all new cars and light trucks sold in Canada. Many experienced drivers still do not know how to use ABS and ESC for optimum safety and performance.
This module will cover vehicle dynamics including loss of traction, skid avoidance methods and the proper techniques to recover from skids and slides. The Instructor will explain that the methods to avoid skids change depending on the available technology of the vehicle. Also covered are hydroplaning, black ice, whiteouts and freezing rain.
This module will explore the mindset of the driver. What motivates drivers? Why do drivers do the things they do when they drive? Why do drivers over-rate their skills? Why do drivers succumb to road rage? This module will have discussion based learning that explores the experiences that all drivers share and what drivers can do to modify their behavior going forward.
We don’t see nearly as well as we think we do. Human eyes are not the best in the world. Our bigger brains improve and enhance what our eyes actually see. Did you know that our sharpest vision is only 3 degrees wide and we see everything upside down and our brain flips it right-side up? What is Inattentional Blindness? How and why do things disappear in plain sight? This module explains the eye techniques that will keep you safer.
