Teen Car Control Clinic Sponsored by

A Commercial driver’s education course teaches the principles of road awareness and safety for prospective first-time drivers. Courses generally cover what we call the basics: Road signs and what they mean, principles of being a safe and responsible driver, how to operate a motor vehicle, traffic laws, and theoretically how to handle those emergency situations.

But did drivers who attended such a course get the experience to know how quickly you can safely stop your vehicle? Or how wet roads or going off-road such as swerving onto the shoulder of the highway affect driving dynamics?

Our clinics take things a bit further.

For over two decades, Audi Club Glacier Lakes has taught hundreds of individuals to become better, safer, more confident drivers. Our Driving Clinic is the  perfect place for teen or adult drivers to have fun while improving their driving skills and building confidence.
Our one-day program combines classroom sessions with behind-the-wheel exercises. Drivers learn how to handle their car in various driving conditions and situations, while receiving coaching and encouragement from their trained instructor sitting in the passenger seat. From slalom and skid pad exercises to braking and accident avoidance, we’ll  teach you or your teen in one day skills that were not taught in the standard Driver’s Education class.

Our Teen Car Control Clinic is the perfect place for teen drivers to have fun, improve their driving skills, and build confidence practicing in a group of their peers.  Teen Clinics focus on drivers 15-19 years of age with a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit. They’ll spend time in the classroom learning about things like how vehicles react under acceleration and braking, what a ‘contact patch’ is, and why it’s important. Then they’ll head out to the closed driving course with a trained instructor in their passenger seat to apply the things they discussed in the classroom. Parents/Guardians have the opportunity to sit in on the classroom portions, and to observe their teen in action on the course as they support the program by helping to reset course cones when needed.

Our Car Control Clinic Goals are to:

  • Improve overall awareness of driving position and its effect on the ability to control a vehicle
  • Educate on the physics that affects car handling and how to use physics to advantage
  • Improve ability to control a vehicle in all weather conditions
  • Improve ability to control a vehicle in both normal and emergency driving situations

Drivers find the exercises both fun and tough—they’re designed to teach drivers how both they and their car react in various conditions.

Attendees do not need to be ACNA Members. However, Members and teen drivers in a Member’s household receive a discounted price on the clinic.
