For over ten years, Tomorrow’s Drivers, a driving school in Newmarket and Markham, has been teaching students the knowledge of how to make good, confident driving decisions. One inhibitor of road safety is anxiety, phobias, traumas or lack of confidence in on-road performance. These fears can contribute to unsafe driving behavior, which endangers the driver and others on the road.
In addition to core training, Tomorrow’s Drivers instructors specialize in treating and curing anxieties and phobias about driving. Instructors analyze how emotions affect the driving student and focus on correcting deep-seated emotional and intellectual bad habits. The goal is to replace bad habits with positive habits in order to develop the emotional confidence of students and make them better drivers.
The symptoms of a phobia can range from mild feelings of apprehension and anxiety to a full-blown panic attack. Physical symptoms can include difficulty breathing, racing or pounding heart, chest pain or tightness, trembling or shaking, feeling dizzy or light-headed, a churning stomach, hot or cold flashes, tingling sensations, or sweating. Sufferers may also experience a range of emotional symptoms such as feeling overwhelming anxiety or panic or feeling an intense need to escape a situation.
People are not born with fears and phobias; instead, these reactions are imprinted in the mind as a learned response from previous negative or traumatic experiences. A driving anxiety could stem from having been in a road accident, witnessing an accident, or being involved in a road rage incident.
The experienced instructors at Tomorrow’s Drivers work with the part of the mind that harbors fears and phobias. Phobia therapy has proven to be extremely effective, and people tend to see results very quickly. By helping drivers replace a negative behavior pattern with a positive pattern, instructors empower students to be more relaxed and maintain focus and control while driving.
Whether the student has a G1 license, G2 license, or a full license, Tomorrow’s Drivers focuses on only one ultimate goal: confidence on the road. It is not sufficient to train only for the road tests, which are easy to pass. The key focus at Tomorrow’s Drivers is to fully immerse students in learning the life-saving skills necessary to drive in any situation they may encounter. With these skills mastered, students can be safe and confident drivers.
