Toyota Kirloskar Motor on Thursday launched its first ‘Toyota Driving School’ in Odisha. It is the company’s 13th such school in the country. It is located at Espirt Toyota at Patia in Bhubaneswar.
This school gives training and technical expertise to enhance driving behavioral skills with an aim to create safer, responsible drivers. It has a comprehensive driver training program that consists of topics such as traffic management, rules, discipline, responsibilities, simulation and more.
“We are proud to partner with Toyota Kirloskar Motor in its sustained efforts of creating a safer driving ecosystem in the country. Being the capital city of the state and a centre of economic, educational and cultural importance of East India, Bhubaneswar brings with it the issues of growing population and rising density of vehicles, making road safety a challenge. With the opening of this driving school, we would be able to inculcate a responsible driving behaviour amongst the people in our city. This will help us significantly contribute towards reducing road mishaps due to driver faults,” said Sunil Taneja, MD, Espirit Toyota.
Among private operators, Maruti Suzuki has driving schools in many cities of Odisha. There is also government-run driving training centre located at Unit-1 in Bhubaneswar.
