    Teens Drive Just Like Their Parents - What Kind of Example are You Setting?

    Behind the Wheel training is where the rubber meets the road (literally). This is where your teen will experience driving in real life situations, putting everything we teach them to use. That said, if you speed, so do they. If you do not make a full stop at a stop sign, neither do they. Its a fact. Set a good example (they watch how you drive and tell us all about it).


    In order to provide our full attention to you, the student, our Behind the Wheel training sessions consist of only two people in the car, the instructor and the student. This allows for the student to ask questions and learn in a judgment-free environment.


    We chose the 2017 Mazda3 Sport or the 2017 Ford Focus as our training vehicles. Both Mazda3 and Ford Focus named a Car and Driver “10 Best Three Years In A Row”:

    4 Wheel disc brakes

    Anti-lock Brake System

    Electronic Brakeforce Distribution

    Six standard air bags


    We will pick you up and drop you off before and after each lesson. This means that we can ensure you get the training you need, when you need it and put an end to missed lessons or rescheduling due to transportation issues.


    A 20 something whose last job was at Starbucks may not be who you want guiding your teen down the freeway at 60 mph. Therefore, all our instructors are parents. They don’t want to be Facebook friends, or hangout with your student after the lesson.
