Preparing New Drivers for the Road Ahead!
Behind the Wheel Update: We are currently driving students that were on our drive schedule prior to the COVID outbreak. We are operating at 50% capacity due to the fact that some of our driving instructors have not returned due to COVID concerns. So please be patient as we hope to get back up to full speed soon.
In an effort to protect our students and instructors, we have begun temperature checking and COVID risk assessment polling of our students. We are also utilizing ultra violet light (UV) and disinfectant to sanitize our vehicles between each drive. Weather permitting, we will leave vehicle windows down to promote fresh air circulation.
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.
