Description: Drive Safer offers a focused car control course that teaches drivers how to control their vehicles in the face of real world situations. The programs are designed to be safe, educational and fun.
The course consists of a classroom session including tech education, followed by the experiential driving course that features four “behind the wheel” exercises (Braking, Slalom, Skidpad, and Hazard Avoidance) with certified high-performance driving instructors in a safe, controlled environment.
The Drive Safer Program is for participants who are: • At least 16 years old • Currently driving on a learner’s permit (or have a driver’s license) • Have completed their 6-hour behind the wheel course • There is no maximum age limit and adults are encouraged to participate as well.
Students leave with a greater respect for their vehicles and for their capabilities as a driver. Parents of students leave with a sense of confidence and security that they have provided their child an unparalleled experience under the supervision of respected professionals.
For every high school student who registers for the October 13th event, 12% of the course fee will be given to their school’s fundraising budget. For more information, please visit www.drivesafer.com.
