Hamilton, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2014 -- Canadians know snow. They may not love it, but know it intimately. Being aware of this predilection for the season that seems to come every year, Young Drivers of Canada, Canada’s largest and only National driving school with over 1 million graduates put together a winter driving website at The site contains not only tips for safe winter driving, but also an online winter driving course with videos of what, and what not to do, this winter when it comes to winter driving.

The winter of 2013-2014’s Polar Vortex has put almost all of North America under fear of driving conditions that deal with icy roads and driving in snow. Young Drivers® understands this with many of its instructional locations located in the most snowed over and ice covered regions in Canada. Young Driver’s instructors are particularly versed and trained in the requirements of vehicle response and technologies, that when managed by a trained driver can be used properly and effectively for defensive winter driving.

According to Angelo DiCicco, General Manager of Young Drivers of Canada,

“Snow what! Our new winter driving program and website is designed to bring our expertise as Canadian driving instructors that face the perils and dangers of winter driving on a daily basis, to one place so that anyone in North America can find out tips and lessons on how to drive safely in the winter. It’s an initiative that’s a long time coming and the first in North America, by Canada’s number one driving school.”

The site has more than 200 helpful winter driving tips and suggestions that are available free to everyone. The website also includes helpful videos specific to winter driving. In addition, visitors can sign up for an online winter driving course for only $29.99, which is also free for anyone that enters Young Drivers® winter driving contest by submitting a photo, story or video about their “Most Funniest or Worst Driving Experience”.
