Annual Teen Street Survival Skills Clinic for drivers aged 15.5 to 19 years of age.
Our Professional Staff welcomes the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills in advanced driver education. The focus of this clinic is to transition from simply operating a motor vehicle to truly driving through acute situations. The greatest skill a race car driver can develop is a high level of “Situational Awareness” the skill is driven by elevated use of the eyes. The skill sets we will share with your teen driver will find them up to 5 seconds of time in an acute situation, this can make the difference.
We welcome and encourage parents to observe and audit the program. Just ask these parents….

Comments from Parents and Teen Participants:
Every Driver Should Take This, Excellent!
I loved it. The only regret is that I didn’t send all my teens through this experience.
Perfect, to have three stages to first learn skills then practice and finally master the skills in a real road like experience on track.
Great to test the limits of the brakes in a safe structured environment. Really fun, confidence building and understanding what the car can do. Already recommending this program with texting to friends! But not while driving… Great program thank you! A fun, tough, challenging experience, I loved it! Absolutely the best class I have ever taken!
I’ll be back. , tomorrow!
I wasn’t thrilled to attend, but really happy I did. Learned to work with my car.
I love learning by doing, and this really made sense to me, I look forward to being a proactive driver.
I appreciated the focus on safety and the emphasis on the primary challenge our teen drivers have today…DWD-“driving while distracted”
