Drivers Edge

This is a great driving experience for all teenagers and young adults. I highy recommend it and best of all it is absolutely FREE!

Driver's Edge is a non-profit organization and public charity solely funded by donations, public grants and corporate sponsorships.

Taught behind the wheel and in the classroom with an "MTV" flavor, Driver's Edge was originally developed to help combat the staggering number of automobile collisions and fatalities that involve our young drivers.

The course is taught by professional race car drivers and performance driving instructors and empowers young drivers through a unique combination of classroom discussions and behind the wheel defensive driving exercises designed to help erase the "Fast and the Furious" and video game mentalities that many youth possess.

Participants receive expert instruction on skid control, evasive lane change manuevers, anti-lock braking skills, panic braking techniques and much more. What does the car feel like when it is skidding seemingly out of control, they will get to feel it and you (the parents) will too!

I think the idea of having driver's education in school is the best idea.

We had one full year of driver's ed, 1/2 year written and 1/2 year driving. There is absolutely no substitute for experience, and replacing some of the wasteful classes with an important year of driver's ed, in my opinion, would be a top-notch decision.

Choosing several teachers from each school who have impeccable driving records and good teaching credential, along with a hefty stipend, would be an excellent step towards building a strong driver's ed program.

How about cutting out all these teacher diversity classes and putting the money toward saving children's lives?
