Driver Education Programs are structured for G1 beginner drivers to enroll in a program when they achieve their G1. Programs are designed to teach the student specific techniques, concepts and the principals of defensive driving and essential collision avoidance techniques to drive comprehensively, responsibly and safely for their lifetime. Programs are not designed to be a crash course and not encouraged to be done as such.

WE ALSO ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO GET DRIVING TIME IN BETWEEN LESSONS. WE DO NOT RUSH STUDENTS THROUGH OUR PROGRAM. WE BELIEVE THAT PRACTICE AND EXPOSURE TO A VARIETY OF DRIVING SITUATIONS THAT RESULT, IS A VITAL PART OF LEARNING TO DRIVE. WE DO NOT PROMOTE NOR OFFER A CRASH TRAINING PROGRAM.
