However, unless you have recently instructed a teen driver of your own on how to drive, it’s hard to remember how clueless we all were when we started driving. On a hot Saturday at the end of July in Northern Virginia, the Audi Club Potomac Chesapeake Chapter (PCC) ran its first teen driving school in recent history to help educate our newest drivers.
