Tire Rack Driving School for Teens - December 6
A worry for every parent is when their kids start driving (I have a hunch my parents were!). At any rate, there are several "neutral" but "authoritative" alternatives (i.e., parents not directly involved) where the stuff that kids do in cars is addressed, and I'm not talking about parkin' at the drive-in - well maybe texting, twittering and endlessly chatting on their cell-phones. Some of the important topics include attitude when behind the wheel, recognizing dangerous situations as they develop and avoiding them, accident avoidance, threshold breaking, smoothness and car control; important stuff that is very lightly covered in traditional driver's ed. Most of the established driver's schools, like Driving Concepts, Bob Bondurant, Skip Barber, Jim Russell, Fast Lane, etc. all have teen driving courses and I have recommended these schools to many of my friends with teenage kids. If there's a deterrent, it's usually cost. Those who have invested in their kid's driving education have raved about the results, and sometimes have even sent their kids back for advanced topics and training.
Some of you may be familiar with the Tire Rack, and several people here have bought tires from them on-line. The Tire Rack has put together a course aimed especially at teen drivers. Together with the Los Angeles chapter of the BMW Car Club of America, they are going to host a school at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana on December 6. I'd imagine that this will be a very popular event that will fill up quickly, so if it's appropriate for you, I'd recommend that you check it out now and sign your teen up. It will be fun and they will love it! Besides, what they learn could help them live a long healthy lifetime - with less stress for you.
