Teen Driving Instruction

On Sunday, April 30, Consumer Reports will host its first teen car control clinic at its Auto Test Center in East Haddam, Connecticut. Last summer they sampled the Tire Rack Street Survival Program and were so impressed that Consumer Reports decided to sponsor an event at their testing facilities in partnership with the Street Survival School.

This driving school will not teach the rules of the road and how to parallel park. Here, teens will learn how to control their vehicles in emergency situations in a safe and controlled environment. Most drivers never get the chance to learn what to do if their car slides sideways or if they need to make a last-minute evasive maneuver to avoid an accident until they absolutely need to. In this class, they will.The class is filling up quickly and is open to licensed or permitted drivers aged 15 to 21 years old.

And if you'd prefer to send your teen driver to a school closer to home, there will be a Tire Rack Street Survival® "hands-on" driving class on Saturday, April 16, from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Adesa Car Auctions,  43375 Old Ox Road, Dulles.
