Our testimonies speak for themselves:

I did the winter driving course this past weekend. I can’t say enough good things. It is excellent ! I really appreciated learning from the team at CM² Driver Development. How to maneuver my own vehicle in different conditions and scenarios. This included sliding, quick lane change, collision avoidance, emergency braking without loosing control. I learned a lot about vehicle dynamics and what my vehicle is capable of. It was great to have very experienced instructors in the vehicle sitting beside me. They were able to give me feedback as I challenged myself and what my vehicle can do in response to the conditions. I gained much needed skills and greater confidence for winter driving. “


I have done defensive driver training courses before. This course really helped me understand the various aspects relating to driving my own large vehicle in winter. I would recommend that everyone do this course once a year.
