Hi everyone — This is my second post about this Raleigh teen driving school.  The classes are returning to Raleigh in October.  My daughter has taken the class twice and I highly recommend it.  It is an excellent defensive driving class.Here is a link to my previous post which has a good description of the class.

Hi Everyone,

This is Bryan with Brown’s Alignment Brake and Auto Repair in Raleigh. My daughter took this class last fall and it just blew me away.  It is a one day defensive safe driving course. My daughter was a visible better and more confident driver when we left there that day.  I never dreamed anyone’s driving skills could improve that much in just one day.

The teen driving school course is held at the Raleigh Police Driving Facility. The kids spend part of the day in classroom instruction but the rest of the day is spent outside driving on the teen driving school course.

The course includes:

1. Maneuvering the car through orange street cones. Kind of a slalom course to teach handling the car a different speeds. In the  class room the theories of weight management, weight transfer and car control are taught.

2.   Braking exercise where braking is practiced with respect to stopping distance. What it takes to stop a vehicle with out hitting the car in front of you. Tailgating exercise.

3.  Figure eight driving course which also works on handling the car but also teaches how to avoid unexpected objects in the road.

SUV are no longer allowed

4.  The last driving drill is learning how to drive on a slick surface and skid control. The Raleigh Fire department was on the course all day spraying on area with soap suds to create slippery surface.

The kids go around the course over and over again. At the end they get to drive the parents through the course.

The only draw back I found is that when the class was over there was noticeable tire wear on our car’s front tires. The experience was definitely worth the wear.

The Tire Rack Street Survival school is a safe teen program designed to go beyond today’s required driver’s education and give teens across the U.S. the driving tools and hands-on experience to become safer, smarter drivers. Trained and qualified in-car driving instructors as well as classroom experience for each student.

It’s more than driving – it’s about living!

The primary emphasis of Tire Rack Street Survival is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them.

The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seat-belts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seat-belts, too!
