The Mercedes-Benz Club of America | Ottawa Section in conjunction with the MBCA Educational Foundation are pleased to deliver the Safe Drivers | Safe Families program at Algonquin College’s Visitor Parking Lot #7 on August 17th.

The overall objective of the program is to provide teens and experienced drivers with a basic set of fundamental skills and attitudes on which they can develop all the knowledge, experience, and techniques of a competent safe driver.

The skills to be taught in the driving clinic are:

  • How to make sure the vehicle is mechanically sound and safe to drive.
  • How to set the seats and mirrors and position the head and hands of the driver for maximum control of the vehicle.
  • How to accelerate, steer, and stop the vehicle in extreme situations.
  • How to steer with the eyes and continuously scan and evaluate the driving environment in order to drive smoothly and safely.
  • How to develop a set of attitudes that will enable the driver to anticipate circumstances that will require a response and determine the proper response for the circumstances.
  • The event is open to MBCA | Ottawa Section members and their families, friends and especially and learning or new drivers.  The program is limited to thirty (30) participants on a first-come-first-served basis.

    To reserve spots please contact Joe Ferner at [email protected] by August 1st.  After August 1st, a $5.00 administrative fee will be charged for reservations.

    This email is sent to allow you to reserve the date on your calendar, gauge interest in the event and determine the cost per participant.  More information will follow once we have an understanding of the level of interest in the event.


    Come and experience your car in a fun and safe environment and give any new or learning drivers a unique opportunity to improve their skills behind the wheel. We look forward to seeing you there.
