Teen driving school set up Sunday in Boardman Park
BOARDMAN — Tire Rack Street Survival® Teen Driving School will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at Boardman Park, 375 Boardman-Poland Road.
Unlike traditional driver’s education programs based on classroom theory and simple maneuvers, the Tire Rack Street Survival® program improves driver competence through hands-on experiences in real-world driving situations.
Students will receive a valuable classroom session and then will learn, hands-on, how to manage daily driving hazards, obstacles and challenges in a controlled environment on an advanced driving course to ultimately "arrive alive."
Students learn emergency braking and skid control, how to control proper braking, and how to avoid accidents entirely.
Students also are taught in their own cars, not specially prepared program vehicles, so the skills they learn can be directly translated to their daily driving experiences.
