First women’s advanced driving course offered in B.C.

Vancouver, B.C. – The first all-women’s advanced driving clinic is being offered at Mission Raceway Park in Mission, B.C. on Victoria Day, May 19th.

The event’s organizer, Morrisport, says the program will increase a drivers skills in emergency braking, crash evasion, accuracy maneuvering and cornering. The day will also include a Car Care session.

“We have surveyed 36 women and in turn have created a program that will help licensed drivers of all ages to become better, more confident drivers,” said instructor Tony Morris Jr. “Of the women we surveyed, only 20 percent have ever had any form of professional training and over 80 percent are very interested in becoming a better driver.”

This event is open to all types of vehicles and will include catered lunch and prizes. Partial proceeds from each entry go to the Simon Fraser Society for Community Living which provides care and support for children with special needs and adults with disabilities.
