Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has announced the launch of the company’s first “Toyota Driving School” in National Capital Region at Faridabad in pursuance of its safety mission of ‘Safest Car with Safest Driver’. Managed by one of the Toyota’s dealerships - Thirty Six Toyota, this is the company’s first Driving School in Faridabad and Sixth in India.

In line with company’s safety mission, Toyota Kirloskar Motor has launched five other driving schools across India in Kochi, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata to improve safety culture in the country.

The curriculum will be a comprehensive driver training program that will boast of practical and futuristic training models like the driver simulator mechanism which is expected to deliver the “Etios Experience”. To make this experience as realistic as possible, Toyota has incorporated features like IP, steering, and seats of an actual Etios car.

The curriculum will cover the following topics:

1. Traffic management, rules and discipline

2. Safe and right driving concepts

3. Manners and responsibilities of a driver

4. Simulation of driving on real vehicle before getting onto road

5. All aspects of practical driving on road

6. Driving on various road and climate conditions

7. Know your car – Basic maintenance and repairs

8. Emergency handling

9. Systematic evaluation and feedback

Chander Shekar Nagar, Dealer Principal - Thirty Six Toyota, Faridabad said “Increasing population and rising traffic in urban areas has compromised road safety. We believe that Toyota Driving School with Toyota’s world-class know-how, professional trainers and a comprehensive curriculum, will be able to inculcate a safer and cautious driving behavior amongst the people in our city.”

N Raja, Director and Senior Vice President (Marketing and Sales) - Toyota Kirloskar Motor said “We are delighted to launch our first driving school in the NCR region at Faridabad reiterating our commitment towards road safety. The NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau) report has revealed that on an average, 17 people are killed in road accidents each and every hour and primary reason of road accidents are poor road safety practices. It is not “just another driving school” for getting a driving license, but it’s much more of a place that follows a comprehensive approach ensuring that every single student becomes a responsible driver on road and a safety ambassador in creating a safe road for everyone to use.”

The simulator, a key part of the teaching program, is expected to provide hands on experience. Learners can practice all car controls like steering, accelerator, brake and gear shift before they take the actual vehicle on the road. The simulators can also create various road and weather conditions like fog, dim light, uphill and downhill terrain. While there will be a standard learning package for beginners, ‘Toyota Driving School’ will also offer the flexibility of additional learning modules so that learners can design a curriculum of their choice.

this is the company’s first Driving School in Faridabad and Sixth in India.
