Each behind the wheel session has specific learning objectives that challenge the student to develop specific driving behaviors into a habit. Each session is progressive in design by adding in complexities such as different road conditions and busier roadways. Our instructors assess the students driving ability and then make proper adjustments where needed so that the student is always training to refine skill level. The skills taught on the previous behind the wheel session are evaluated for proficiency and re-taught if needed. Our instructors go through a rigorous training program to learn and be able to adequately teach each driving skills.
Highlighted skills taught include:
- Hazard detection and proper response
- Traffic and intersection awareness
- How driving decisions increase or decrese accident risk
- Off road recovery
- Lane positioning to increase traction through curves
- Hazards associated with dirt roads and rural roads
The course is done in three sessions, two hours each. We believe that student's driving habits are paramount to safety. It is important for teens to develop driving habits consistent with the skills we teach. The 2-hour sessions are enough to introduce these skills. Their habits are developed when driving with parents. We try to faciliate habit developement by asking that there be practice time between each drive. We also equip parents with detailed documents describing the taught skills so these skills can be enforced and encouraged to build the safest, most defensive, independent driver possible.
If only wanting to purchase the behind the wheel services, it is very important to start the process aproximately 6 months prior to the date you want your student to receive their license. Inclement weather can pose a significant challenge if trying to complete the behind the wheel sessions within a three month period.
We also offer a Mountain Drive and Downtown City Drive as these two drives are designed to challenge students to be able to safely manage the complexities of mountain highways and snow packed roads as well as the challenges of navigation in new cities. These drives are purchased and scheduled independent of the 6 hours behind the wheel training. Students must also have completed all 6 hours behind the wheel training before scheduling these drives as the skills taught during the 6 hours behind the wheel need to be second nature before the student will be able to adequately and proficiently learn more challenging drives.
Students must possess a valid instruction permit prior to the first session.
