Our classroom driver’s education has an unparalleled success reviewing those topics most fundamental to the safety of teens including the importance of driver attitudes, problem solving in traffic and effective driving habits of defensive drivers, risk management, vehicle control and a comprehensive program on drugs, including Alcohol, and driving. These and many more topics are presented through lectures and enhanced by audio/visuals and class discussions.
