DETAILS:

Car crashes are the leading killer of American teens from ages 15 – 20, with more than 5,000 teens involved in a fatal crash each year, nearly 2,000 teen drivers killed and an additional 180,000 teens injured.

Simple driving errors, avoidable but common among inexperienced teens, cause the majority of fatal accidents.

  • Tire Rack Street Survival® is a national driver education program that teaches teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel.  Unlike traditional driver’s education programs based on classroom theory and simple maneuvers, the Tire Rack Street Survival®  program improves driver competence through hands-on experiences in real-world driving situations.
  • Students will receive a short classroom session and then will learn, hands-on, how to manage everyday driving hazards, obstacles and challenges in a controlled environment on an advanced driving course to ultimately ‘arrive alive.’
  • Students are taught in their own cars, not specially prepared program vehicles, so the skills they learn can be directly translated to their daily driving experiences. Tire Rack Street Survival® challenges teenagers to understand how to control a vehicle, rather than just operate one.

 

Tire Rack Street Survival® is open to licensed and permitted drivers ages 15 – 21.  Forms, schedules and more information can be found online at www.streetsurvival.org. The cost is $75 per student and some insurance companies offer premium discounts to graduates.
