||Street Survival is a unique hands-on driving experience for drivers ages 15-21 that puts each student behind the wheel of his or her own car along with a trained instructor. After classroom discussion, students go out on course with their instructors to practice the exercises. The instruction takes place on a closed, wetted-down parking lot, so students experience emergency driving situations in a controlled environment. We teach accident avoidance, skid control, emergency braking, and many other driving skills. Students get to practice maneuvers many times over to gain skills and learn from their own mistakes in this intense one day class.

||The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that approximately 80% of accidents among teenage drivers are caused by driver error. The Street Survival program is designed to provide teenagers with the skills needed to avoid costly mistakes. Street Survival takes teens well beyond basic Driver's Education classes. It teaches them driving techniques on how to avoid accidents before they happen. With Iowa winter always around the corner, it just makes sense to enroll your teen.
