ABOUT MONTANA DRIVE:

The one-day workshop includes two hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the-wheel maneuvers on a closed raceway track near the Lewistown Airport. Each workshop is limited to 12 drivers with 4 instructors, so every driver benefits from individual attention and has hours of hands-on practice behind the wheel of the skid car, school bus, pickup truck, or ambulance. Drivers learn to respond safely to typical driving risks, gaining confidence and skill.
 
TESTIMONIAL:
I was driving home to Great Falls from Missoula on Highway 200. In a hurry, I decided to pass another vehicle on the two-lane road. The problem was, there was black ice on the road and as I pulled into the other lane the back end of the truck started fishtailing to the left.  (click here for the rest of the story and other testimonials)

The mission of the Montana DRIVE Program is to enhance management of driver risk through in-vehicle training and education services to schools, governments, businesses, and the general public. The workshops contribute to this by:
  • Increasing the participant’s awareness of driving risks,
  • Identifying driver and vehicle limitations,
  • Providing practice in driving behaviors that anticipate and manage risks,
  • Providing confidence-building opportunities to successfully manage critical situations, and
  • Encouraging and practicing "every time" use of seat belts.
