Help teen drivers to survive behind the wheel by learning their cars’ handling limits and how to deal with them

The Tire Rack Street Survival School is a must for all teen drivers. When teen drivers attend this school they learn to drive their car in a safe and controlled way and they learn and practice driving skills that will keep them safe on the road.

The cost is is $95. The school is a full day, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We provide coffee, juice and donuts, lunch, and liquid refreshments throughout the day for students, parents, and volunteers.

The day is a mixture of classroom and in-car exercises. The students spend about two hours in three classroom sessions where they learn the theory of safe driving. Except for an hour break for lunch, the rest of the time is spent driving their car in a series of 5 or 6 exercises that simulate real world driving conditions.

Students learn how they and their car can cope with actual driving situations. Instructors will ride with the students and provide immediate feedback, and students will drive each exercise many times, allowing them to learn from their mistakes and develop and practice correct driving techniques.

Parents are encouraged to attend our school. They may sit in on the classroom presentations and observe the driving exercises.

Volunteers Needed!

Hosting this school will require lots of volunteer help. We will need as many in-car instructors as we can get. Ideally, the same instructor stays with a student all day. Anyone who has attended at least two or three SEM/ PCA on-track Drivers’ Education events is likely to have the knowledge needed to be an instructor.

We also need volunteers to assist with registration and to set up and conduct the exercises. Orange traffic cones are used to mark the course. Because they frequently get knocked down during the sessions, replacing them is almost a full-time task. For this, we often recruit parents who stay at the school.

If you would like to volunteer, please send me an email and let me know what role you would like to fill. No experience necessary, we will train you.
