Be the holiday hero this year and give the gift of the season with a gift certificate to kartSTART! Kids will experience the exhilaration of driving a motorized vehicle while ensuring a foundation for the basics of safe driving.

KartSTART, presented by Toyota Canada is an educational, entertaining driver orientation program that helps young drivers understand how a vehicle works. The program was designed to provide an opportunity for kids to operate a motor vehicle before turning 16 and heading out on the roads. The half-day course is available to kids 10 years of age and older and their families.

KartSTART’s experienced instructors show the kids the basics of how the cart operates and leads the youngsters around the track. The kids learn to operate a motor vehicle that is more proportionate to their size than a car and they learn the basics of operation, including, the steering, throttle, brakes and most importantly, how these components work together.

“The kartSTART program is very unique in several ways,” says owner, Russ Bond. “The key is we teach youngsters in vehicles that fit them: our karts. What we teach here is how a vehicle works. What makes it go, what makes it stop, and what makes it turn.  We teach our students what is happening to the vehicle as they drive down the road. Every journey starts with a first step; our job is to make sure that our families’ first step is in the right direction.”

Parents are also encouraged to participate in the session and continue the journey of safe driving preparation through discussion of the experience. A light meal will be provided for everyone in attendance, and family photographers are welcome to document the memories, though it’s sure to be an experience the kids will NEVER forget!
