Last year my daughter participated in the kartSTART driver education program. It’s a unique family driving education program, that is designed to give teenagers and their families a true real world understanding of the physics behind driving a motorized vehicle.
Toyota Canada and retired racing driver Russ Bond are bringing the kartSTART program to select Canadian cities again this summer. KartSTART is a unique opportunity for your 10 year old and up, to learn the basic skills of driving in a very fun and interesting way. They will be taught how to drive in a professional racing kart.
Their half-day course gives youngsters, 10 years and older a driving experience in vehicles that fit them, go-karts. Their expert bilingual English/French instructors give new drivers a clear understanding behind the physics, as well as the dynamics of driving a motorized vehicle in a closed course environment.
They will get the use of a Snell approved helmet as well as the use of a CIK racing suit. The program includes a safety driving exercise for the whole family and also includes a catered lunch. The whole package costs only $79 plus HST and is worth $250.
