WHAT OUR STUDENTS LEARN

On Street Lessons

Your student spends time behind the wheel under the guidance of one of our expert driving coaches. They are able to practice necessary skills and gain confidence as they earn hours they need to get licensed. This training time includes things like negotiating traffic, parallel parking, and proper techniques. Our instructors are called coaches because they don't just tell a student what to do. They guide them, give feedback, and know exactly how to instill the confidence each student needs.

Skid Camp

A 2-hour Skid Camp is designed to teach your student  lifesaving skills like skid control, safe vehicle handling in a hydroplaning situation or in poor weather conditions.

Unlike our competitors, we utilize a proprietary skid pad that allows students to safely experience, be coached through, and recover from a skid or a hydroplaning event.

Please note that students need to use a family vehicle for our driving camps. 

 

Skills Driving Camp

Our 6-hour Skills Driving Camp gives drivers foundational defensive driving skills. Students learn dynamic car control, crash avoidance, crisis breaking, and how to safely perform emergency lane changes.

Our instruction gives students the confidence and mastery to understand the mechanics of what to do in a crisis situation and having an automatic, split-second response to a dangerous situation.
