Take driver education at American Defensive Driving School in Evanston, IL

Preparing New Drivers for the Road Ahead!

Learn defensive driving from our Evanston, IL driving school

Obtaining a driver's license is a big step for anyone. For new teen drivers, it is one of the first major milestones as they transition into adulthood. Learning to be a confident and defensive driver is an important life skill. Parents of new drivers need to feel comfortable that their child is well prepared to become a responsible member of the driving population. Consider the facts:

Teen drivers are 20 times more likely to be involved in a crash
than adult drivers

33% of all first-year drivers are involved in a collision

Most crashes are caused by driver error

American Defensive Driving School is one of only two schools in Illinois using the AAA Motor Club's license to learn the curriculum. This curriculum teaches teens through video, real-life examples, and interactive activities.
