July 4th Teen Safe Driver Sale – Celebrate Freedom and Family this 4th!

The day your teenager gets behind the wheel of a car for the first time is a challenging one. It’s stressful relinquishing control and the keys and letting them out on the road. While your teen is surely rejoicing over their newfound freedom, you may find yourself in a panic about all the things that could go wrong.

If like many parents you’re concerned about the safety of your new driver, there is something significant you can do about it. Simraceway’s Performance Driving Center has developed the Teen Safe Driver Program that’s specifically geared towards teens and increasing their driving safety. Let this summer be an opportunity to alleviate some of that stress. Here are three great reasons why the Teen Safe Driver Program is a solid investment:

1. Your Teen is in Good Hands 

Simraceway is home to numerous driving programs and events catering to nearly every driving ability. In the Teen Safe Driver Program, your teen will learn valuable car control and driving skills from the same people who train CHP cadets and some of the top executives at AAA. The Program has also received a five-star rating from TripAdvisor. In other words, they’re some of the best teachers and drivers in the country. The school utilizes safe, quality vehicles, and everyone involved takes driver-safety very seriously. This all makes for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for your inexperienced driver, and significant peace of mind for you.

2. It Helps Sharpen Driving Skills

This one day program is broken into two parts: classroom time, and seven instructive driving sessions. Numerous driving skills and techniques are covered like proper steering, accident avoidance, emergency lane changes, and skid control and recovery. Students will also have the opportunity to drive through a controlled slalom course and an advanced emergency lane change exercise. These specialized activities will make your teen better equipped and feeling more confident about getting behind the wheel.

3. You Learn Safety Precautions and How to Avoid Distractions

One of the main causes of accidents on the road today are distracted drivers. As part of the distracted driver module in the Teen Safe Driver Program, teens will explore how to avoid distractions behind the wheel and what it means to be a responsible driver. After a day of thought-provoking lessons and discussions, students will venture out and have the invaluable opportunity to practice these safety rules and techniques.
