Teen Car Control Clinc
April 9, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Teen CCC is a low-cost event targeted specifically at younger drivers. While driver’s ed focuses on the rules of the road, car control education has a different focus. The key goals of the program include teaching teens how to deal with the unexpected through better skills behind the wheel, and how to prevent the unexpected through improved awareness and judgment.
For example, our material covers how to swerve around an obstacle, how to stay in control during a panic braking stop, how to improve the use vision for better anticipation. These skills are especially important for teen drivers to learn, given their limited experience behind the wheel – and can be life saving knowledge. What could be more important than giving a teenage driver the knowledge and skills to be a better, safer driver?
Using their own cars, students will learn the hands-on physics of car control, pushing the limits of tire adhesion in a safe, controlled situation. A trained driving instructor accompanies each student to provide immediate feedback while students maneuver their cars through exercises laid out with orange rubber cones in a closed parking lot. Exercises are designed to be fun, safe, challenging, and educational—and each exercise teaches specific skills.
The normal cost of registration plus one year membership is $188. This is discounted to $120 for this event.
