Today we kicked off our first Teen Driving School event in partnership with BIR Performance Driving School in an effort to teach teens the skills they need when acquiring a drivers license. The Driving Defense Program was held at the National Sports Center and was the first test run at an event that we will be offering regularly this summer. The program is designed to help young drivers to feel comfortable and confident when behind the wheel by teaching them the advanced techniques they need to become safe, responsible drivers.
Here’s a quick break down of the program and what it entails:
Teens will attend Classroom instruction and in-car exercises (in their own car) and those will include the following:
Fundamental vehicle dynamics and knowing the limits of your car
Emergency and threshold braking including ABS activation
Emergency lane change maneuvers
Skidpad exercises and traction loss
Distracted driving exercises simulating texting and driving under the influence
Combined skills course
