Register here for our next Teen Clinic on Sunday, May 21 at the Solano Community College in Fairfield, CA.

North Bay Teen Driving Clinic

The clinic is designed to go far beyond what is typically taught in Drivers Ed or a driving school with an emphasis on keeping the students in their cars with only a little time spent in the classroom. This is best described as a classroom within the car.

The event is open to all teen drivers between the age of 15 1/2 and 19 (consideration can be made for drivers up to the age of 21) who have a valid learning permit, provisional driver’s license or full driver’s license. All teen students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and they must be driving a fully registered vehicle. All makes and models of cars are welcome and membership in the Audi Club of North America is not required for this event.

The cost of the Teen Driving Clinic is $150 for each student which includes lunch, snacks and beverages. There is an additional $20 fee for any parent or other person who wishes to attend with the student (lunch, snacks and beverages).

The event will teach teen drivers to control their cars in a variety of real-world situations. Each teen driver will have an in-car tutor who will guide him or her through practical exercises of: accident avoidance, ABS and panic braking and slalom driving all in dry and wet conditions. These exercises are designed to improve awareness of the teen driver’s car and how to control it. Additionally there is an exercise called “driving the dots” that is designed to help the teen drivers become more aware of where the edge of the lane (or curb) is located. Classroom sessions will focus on “real world” situations that teens face every day on the road, including proper lane changing, merging and passing techniques. Distraction hazards, such as texting while driving, will also be discussed.

At the end of the day all teen drivers will leave with much-improved driving skills and big smiles. If you have any questions, please send email to [email protected].
