Teen Car Control Clinic
July 29, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Do you have a young, recently-licensed driver in your family? Are you one yourself? Well, there’s a driving event coming up that’s just the thing: a free car control clinic for licensed drivers ages 16 to 21. This all-day clinic will be held at the Marina Airport in Marina, CA on Sunday, July 29, 2018.
Traditional driver’s-ed classes for teenage and beginning drivers typically focus on driving regulations and some basic practices—the rules of driving. Our car control clinics teach driving skills: how to swerve around an obstacle, how to stay in control during a panic stop, how to improve and use one’s vision for better anticipation and situational awareness. 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, more confident driver?
Using their own cars, students will learn hands-on the physics of car control, pushing the car’s and their own limits in a safe, controlled setting. 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. The exercises are fun, safe, challenging, and educational.
