Accident Prevention / Avoidance Training for Teen Drivers

This course provides a proactive approach to teen driving safety. Over the course of 2 or 3 lessons we teach your young driver things that can:

1. Decrease their chance of having an accident
2. Make them more attentive behind the wheel
3. Make their driving less stressful
4. Show them how to practice and reinforce these skills every time they drive.

Training takes place at your location, in the driver's primary vehicle. Usually we like to have at least two sessions, one to evaluate and start the training and one to continue and enforce the driving skills and observation techniques. Most people use three sessions and they can also be used by anyone in the family if they want.
