A driver’s education course teaches the principles of road awareness and safety for prospective first-time drivers. Those 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 they get the experience to know how quickly they can safely stop their vehicle? Or how wet roads or going off-road, such as swerving onto the shoulder of the highway, can affect driving dynamics?
We take things a step further…..
For over two decades, the Glacier Lakes Chapter of Audi Club North America (ACNA) has taught hundreds of teens to become better, safer, more confident drivers. Our Teen Driving Clinic is the perfect place for the teen driver to have fun, improve driving skills, and build confidence. The course is designed to help teens improve their ability to control a vehicle in both normal and emergency situations.
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, encouragement, and praise from their trained, in-car instructor. From slalom and skid pad exercises to braking and accident avoidance, we’ll teach your teen in one day some of what was not offered in their Driver’s Education classes.
