Basic Car Control & Defensive Driving Course



Product Description

Drive Safer’s car control and defensive driving course is a driving boot camp that immerses the driver in a thorough understanding of ‘WHY’ the car does what it does.  We dig into the physics behind car control and then provide students with instruction on ‘HOW’ to do it.

This 6-hour driving course includes:

  • a classroom session
  • tech education
  • four (4) critical “behind the wheel” exercise stations
  • six (6) core exercises
  • Small group training and one-on-one in-car training
  • Certified high-performance driving instructors.
           (The instructors teach both inside the vehicle and outside the vehicle as your teen observes others doing the exercises.)
  • a safe, controlled environment.
